  1. Context menu now has "Powershell" instead of "Command Prompt"


    So I updated to the CU over a week ago, and I noticed an odd change. The "Open command prompt here" option in the shift+right-click context menu has been replaced by "Open Windows Powershell here" instead. Powershell does not work with the apps I use (for example, an RPA extractor, Powershell just gives an error). How do I revert this change?

    :)

  2. N79; can't run " home media " menu

    sawatdee krap,

    maybe because you havent set any connections for "home media". i think it needs to connect with your computer. you also need to install SimpleCenter's Home Media Server software on your PC

    maybe this will help you -

    N79; can't run " home media " menu

    Context menu now has "Powershell" instead of "Command Prompt"

    It's changed from Command Prompt to Powershell on a right-click on Start too. There's a switch for 'replace Command Prompt with Windows Powershell...' in:
    Settings > Personalization > Taskbar

    The switch has always been there, the default setting changed for the Creators Update. Unfortunately it doesn't seem to change the context menu. *Sad

    I thought about telling him that, but the setting you are talking about its when pressing Windows X or right clicking the start menu. He is talking about context menu.

    Did you try rebooting after making the change?

  12. Wow, you guys are fast! Thanks, I will try that and report back.

    EDIT: It worked! No need to reboot, either. Funny that the Powershell option is still there, but meh.

  13. Context menu now has "Powershell" instead of "Command Prompt"

    So, all I have to do to get a context menu command prompt that correctly runs commands which produce utf8 output is to edit the registry? Thanks, Microsoft!

  14. I didn't install anything. It just appeared in the context menu when I shift + right-clicked on my desktop.
    A temporary fix would be to type "cd Desktop", of course, "Desktop" can be changed to whichever directory you need.

    You can simply type cmd from powershell to jump to the old style command prompt.
