Command Prompt is perhaps the most important tool in Windows. Since the syntax for writing command line arguments remains the same in all versions of Windows, it makes the tool more consistent than any other Windows tool. Windows Powershell is a relatively complex tool compatible with the second half of Windows versions.
Windows Powershell works partly like the command prompt, but it also allows you to run unsupported Powershell scripts from the command prompt.
Windows 10 offers a unique way to change the command prompt in Windows Powershell. Whenever you right-click the “Start” icon or press the “Win Key + X” keys, the Command Prompt and Command Prompt (Admin) appear as one of the menu options.
But what if you are a frequent Powershell user and want PowerShell and PowerShell admin in the win + x menu?
Here's how you do it.
In this article, we will follow some steps on how to replace the command prompt with Windows PowerShell in the Windows 10 menu:
Right-click on the Windows taskbar located at the bottom of the screen and click on “Properties”.
Click on the "Navigation" tab.
In the navigation section in the corner, enable the check mark that says "Replace Command Prompt with Windows Powershell in the menu when right-clicking in the lower left corner or pressing Windows key + X".
Note: You can undo changes, for example (show command prompt (admin) and command prompt menu) by removing the check mark.
Now whenever you press Windows key + x at the same time, you will see powershell instead of cmd in the menu.
