    How to change the WinX menu, including Powershell/Powershell (Admin)


    Hello,

    My new W10 installation has issues. I wrote a separate post about the Explorer Menu related issues.
    The others are related to the WinX menu:
    1. POWERSHELL IMPOSSIBLE
    When I use the W10 menu and select that the command prompt should be replaced by Powershell, the menu option itself is changed. But I cannot use it. An error message says restrictions prevent performance. There is no default program installed or so. Well, Powershell IS on the pc, but apparently cannot be linked to the menu option.
    I read parts of the Powershell tutorial but did not quite understand it. It seemed different from my issue.
    2. HOW TO ADD 'CONTROL PANEL' TO WIN-X
    I wish to add the control panel option to the win-x menu. Seems impossible.

    Thanks for helping,
    Wim

    :)

    PowerShell instead of Commandline in Creators Update

    PowerShell can process many CLI commands but does have its own syntax as you are finding.

    I use it a lot at a management level for carious workstation and sever tasks. Pretty much anything Windows does in the GUI is a powershell command.

    I recommend you look up some info on Google and also look into the book, Learn PowerShell in 30-days Worth of Lunches. That'll give you a great start to properly using and understanding PowerShell. Its extremely powerful and useful...the caveat is learning it and understanding what it wants.

    You should be able to set it back to CLI in personalization settings if you don't want to learn it. CLI is still food enough for most folks...not sure why they felt the need to do that...ironically I have my menus set to display PowerShell instead of CLI.

    PowerShell instead of Commandline in Creators Update

    Interestingly enough my personal laptop just got the update...and still has Command Prompt listed, not PowerShell...

    Edit: Not that it matters...I use both regularly. *Toast :toast:
