How to set aliases in Git Bash for Windows?

For Windows 10 with Git Bash:
Edit file “%userprofile%\.bashrc”
Using Notepad++ or other text editor in Administrator mode.

Add another alias line beneath the present alias lines:

alias ls='ls --color=auto --show-control-chars -a -p --time-style=long-iso -h -X --group-directories-first'
alias ll='ls -l --color=auto --show-control-chars -a -p --time-style=long-iso -h -X --group-directories-first'
alias ngs='ng serve --open'
alias grep='grep -i -n --color=always'
alias log='git log --color --graph --pretty=format:'%Cred%h%Creset -%C(yellow)%d%Creset %s %Cgreen(%cr)%C(bold blue) <%an> %Creset' --abbrev-commit'

Above is an alias ngs for serving angular development server and open a web browser.
Instead of typing “ng serve –open” in Git bash window you should now be able to just use ngs as an shortcut alias.
