    In a PowerShell 7.0.1 prompt, when I type the following:


    Update-Help -Verbose

    • $PSVersionTable output:

    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:
