Microsoft Replaces Command Prompt with PowerShell in Windows 10

The Command Prompt has been part of Windows for a very long time, but it is being replaced starting with Windows 10 build 14971. It looks like Microsoft is trying to make PowerShell the main command shell in their latest update to their premier operating system.

In this build, PowerShell will officially replace the traditional Command Prompt in most any way you used to run the utility. Even typing cmd in the run dialog will launch PowerShell.

  1. I upgraded to 14971 today, and had no problem actually getting to Command Prompt. What I’ve found is that they replaced it on the right-click shortcut menu, which lends evidence to the thought that they are trying to replace it. However, using cmd at the Run prompt brought it up with no problems.
