Using PowerShell as default option in Windows 10 menu

Share this:

By default in Windows 10 (well, on previous versions as well) when we either use right-click on the lower-left corner or Windows + X , we will have a menu with several tools, and the Command Prompt is included there.

Solution


You can see the result of Windows + X on the image below where Command Prompt and Command Prompt (Admin) are being listed.

In the current public preview of Windows 10, we can ask properties of the Taskbar, and on the Navigation tab we can select the only option available on the Corner Navigation area.

The result is that Windows PowerShell replaces Command Prompto.
