How to Change the PowerShell Prompt as Default in Windows 10 Creators Update

Monday, April 17, 2017
You may notice that when you right-click the Windows start button or press Windows key-X to pull up the taskbar menu that the Command Prompt and Command Prompt (Admin) options have been replaced with Windows PowerShell and Windows PowerShell (Admin) options. I know it's a little thing and don't get me wrong, I love PowerShell, but sometimes I'd rather normally open an elevated CMD prompt.


If you want to change this back to the pre-Creators Update behavior simply open Settings and click Personalization. Then click the Taskbar settings.


Turn off, Replace Command Prompt with Windows PowerShell in the menu when I right-click the start button or press Windows key-X. This was the default behavior before the Creators Update.
