    How do I access Windows 10 Power Shell commands?


    When I click on the windows in the bottom left of the Taskbar, I get Command Prompt options - but not Power Shell options. By the way, what is the difference between the two? Thank you.

    :)

    Power shell to Command prompt in windows creators update

    Yes Microsoft in their wisdom are phasing out Command Prompt in favour of Powershell . . .

    Here are the steps to add that option back to the Context Menu in Windows File Explorer:

    • Make sure you can see files extensions - In File Explorer, on the View Tab, check the box 'File Name Extensions'
    • Close File Explorer if it is open
    • Right click a black space on your Desktop, choose New - Text Document
    • Copy the text below into it
    • Save the file and give it a meaningful name
    • Change the file extension from .txt to .reg
    • Right click the file and choose 'Merge'
    • Confirm the merge when asked
    • That's it, you're done, 'Open Command Prompt Here' will be back on your Shift + Right click menu in File Explorer!

    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\shell\cmdprompt]

    @="@shell32.dll,-8506"

    "Extended"=""

    "NoWorkingDirectory"=""

    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\shell\cmdprompt\command]

    @="cmd.exe /s /k pushd \"%V\""

    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\Background\shell\cmdprompt]

    @="@shell32.dll,-8506"

    "Extended"=""

    "NoWorkingDirectory"=""

    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\Background\shell\cmdprompt\command]

    @="cmd.exe /s /k pushd \"%V\""

    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Drive\shell\cmdprompt]

    @="@shell32.dll,-8506"

    "Extended"=""

    "NoWorkingDirectory"=""

    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Drive\shell\cmdprompt\command]

    @="cmd.exe /s /k pushd \"%V\""

    EXTRA NOTE: To add Command Prompt back to the right click of your Start Menu
    (this only adds Command Prompt back to your Start menu), right click your Taskbar, choose Taskbar Settings and turn this option on . . .

    Windows 10 Tweaks

    Pressing “Windows+Pause Break” (it’s up there next to scroll lock) opens the “System” Window.

    Windows 10: In the new version of Windows, Explorer has a section called Quick Access. This includes your frequent folders and recent files. Explorer defaults to opening this page when you open a new window. If you’d rather open the usual This PC, with links to your drives and library folders, follow these steps:

    • Open a new Explorer window.
    • Click View in the ribbon.
    • Click Options.
    • Under General, next to “Open File Explorer to:” choose “This PC.”
    • Click OK
