  1. An older version of PowerShell is installed in my PC


    According to Microsoft Docs, Windows 10 has Powershell 5.1 installed by default. But, I still have v5.0 in my computer. What could be the reason behind it? How can I update it?

    :)

  2. Swapping to an older version of windows

    Is there still an official way to drop back to an older version of windows, I honestly don't mind using a 3rd party way. If possible, can you list step by step instructions or a link to an easy to use website. Thanks.

    PowerShell instead of Commandline in Creators Update
