Yes. I am using the VSCode terminal to run Isabelle2020/Cygwin-Terminal.bat. It does not open a different console window,  and is working in the same terminal window, but the shell is changed from Windows's PS shell to a bash of Cygwin.

I want to do similar things, but preferably in Isabelle/VS Code, because I like it's lightweight. 
Unfortunately, the Backspace and arrow keys does not work under Windows/Cygwin. 
I hope the problem can be solved by some simple configuration change. But I can not find any hint on this issue.
