    As pointed out on

    git difftool and git difftool path/to/file will always print the diff on the console
    git difftool head and git difftool head path/to/file will use Beyond compare (or whatever you configured) to show the diff.

    For whatever reason which seems to be missing from the GIT manual.

    That sounds like a bug with the specific version of Git, or the .gitconfig is not properly configured for the current command line (git bash or command line) you are using.

    I would suggest running the --config command lines documented here on the same command line you are executing the "git difftool" command:

    This will help verify that the .gitconfig for the current view is configured, which should prompt for "Viewing (1/X) 'file.txt'. Launch bc [Y/n]"

    I would also suggest updating Git.
