    Not all command lines of CMD are working in Powershell

    In build 14971.1000 Microsoft has changed Command prompt with Powershell in the right-click context Startmenu, see screenshot below.

    Batch files (.bat or .cmd) will also not run properly in Powershell because not all command lines of HELP are working in the Powershell. How do we run batch (.bat) files with command lines that aren't supported in it.

    Consider you have a file "test.bat" on the root of the D: dirve. You can't run in it Powershell by entering "test.bat" on the D: drive. The term will not be recognized. You have to write "D:\test.bat" to run it in Powershell. That is strange behaviour. In
    the old CMD you didn't had to add "D:\" path in the line to run it in the opened directory.

    I know CMD can still be executed in the Startmenu of build 14971.1000, but it looks they are changing this behaviour. It is now hidden from the contextmenu by default.

    For those who prefer to use Command Prompt, you can opt out of the WIN + X change by opening Settings > Personalization > Taskbar, and turning “Replace Command Prompt with Windows PowerShell in the menu when I right-click the Start button or press Windows
    key+X” to “Off”.

    Can't run command in PowerShell but OK in Cmd


    I tried the suggested command and it does work manually in Power Shell. But Task Scheduler chokes on it.

    If i say "Yes" it breaks up the command string to "%C:\program" with the rest of the command as an argument.

    10 CMD commands that can be executed with PowerShell

    Not all command lines of CMD are working in Powershell

    Since Powershell is the main command tool in Windows 10 Insider build 14971.1000 and the CMD has gone in the background I am missing some command lines from "HELP", like "SET" in the Powershell. The HELP command in Powershell is also not working. So as
    said, not all the command lines are not working in PowerShell. Also specific information about the command using for "COPY /?" for more information about the command line etc is also not working in Powershell. I will miss these when Powershell will be the
    only command tool.
