How can I use TC to run Cygwin in some tabs? I see there's a "Tabs" settings page, but how can I choose which shell I want to run in a new tab?

Choose Tabs -> Run, you'll get the Run Program dialog. Fill in:

%CYGWIN%\bin\bash.exe --login -i

where %CYGWIN% is your Cygwin install dir. You'll get a tab with just the Cygwin bash shell running in it.

Thanks for the tip, can I create a shortcut for that?

AFAIK the graphical tabbing shell TC itself does not have shortcuts.
However, it has the TAB BAR, where you can put a tab button do this. Read
the topic "toolbardlg.htm".

You can use one of the Cygwin shells (bash or ksh) in a startup tab by
entering the name in the Command field for the desired tab (on the Take
Command Options / Tabs page).

You can also define a toolbar button to start a shell in a tab window.

And you can create a shortcut to start a shell in a tab with the Take
Command /T startup option.

See the help for more details.
