    Hi Andre,

    I did all items you listed.

    After reboot, running CMD and powershell (admin) had the same result ("no app associated"). So I turned the feature off in taskbar settings.

    Regards,

    Danker

    cmd vs powershell


    If you don't know why you would use powershell vs cmd, then you probably only need cmd. However, there may be times (especially if you're following a tutorial on here) where they will give you commands that are powershell commands.

    There are many subsystems in Windows that have Powershell interfaces for command scripting. So you have to issue commands from Powershell for these.

    As an aside, you can enter most cmd commands in powershell and they'll work just fine. For a lot of people you can use them interchangeably.
