The Cygwin native terminal emulator `mintty` is supported by Cygwin default `ncurses`/`terminfo` installs:

$ TERM=mintty tput colors

Some examples that I view that can do Cygwin better by default:

tput colors

echo $TERM
I made my mintty changes by point & click experimentation - if you
want to make system-wide changes the place to do that is in
   Configuring mintty
   For its configuration, it reads configuration files in this order:
       ... etc.

$ grep -i term .minttyrc

$ tput colors

$ echo $TERM

Note that mintty always supports all modes, including 256 colours and
true-color (TERM=xterm-direct), regardless of the TERM setting or the
$TERM environment value. That value is only used by some applications
(like tput and apparently vim) as an indication which features to use.

And if use vim, comparing with one Ubuntu terminal:

I need to set "set mouse-=a" because the copy paste is difficult.
The colors are very bright.
The cursor does not look good when doing a search and moves over the yellow
background text.

What settings would I need to make it look like Ubuntu's vim?
I'd suggest doing a 'man vim' to find out where all the possible
configuration files are & then copy them to your cygwin machine.

You can change in the initial install setup of Cygwin to set the default
terminal to 256 color as Ubuntu does?
