How to Replace Windows PowerShell with Command Prompt in Power User Menu

When you open Power User menu (To do that: right-click on the “Start” button or press Windows key + X), you can see “Windows PowerShell” and “Windows PowerShell (Admin)” options.

If you want to replace those with “Command Prompt” and “Command Prompt (Admin)” options, then here are the steps:

  1. Click on an empty area of the Taskbar and then select “Taskbar settings.” Alternatively, you can go to “Taskbar settings” by launching Run Command, typing “ms-settings:taskbar” (without double quotes) in it and then by pressing “Enter” key.
  2. Now, click the toggle underneath the “Replace Command Prompt with Windows PowerShell in the menu when I right-click the start button or press Windows key + X.”
