    Right clicking the Windows logo (start button?) at the bottom left of screen works and does the same. I can go there where some of the options are - run/Windows PowerShell/Windows PowerShell(Admin). Problem is that some of the Tutorial commands won't run from any of these options...

    Thanks for your patience.

    Please could you post a couple of screenshots including the whole frame showing the command and the result.

    To post a screenshot please use the icon above your post to the left of the video icon.

    That's what I see Windows key + X... is yours missing those?

    This may help:

    I think the default changed to Powershell for most people - either it didn't or me, or I used the option given in that tutorial to reinstate the command prompt (but I don't think I did!)

    For the power user menu you can change powershell to command prompt.
    Once that is done you can quickly launch command prompt.

    Open control panel > appearance and personalization > taskbar and navigation > under taskbar > turn on "replace command prompt with Windows powershell in the menu when I right click the start button or press Windows key + X

    That seems to be an attempt at Option 2 in the tutorial, which requires you to
    a. Boot to a command prompt (Did you?)
    b. You then seem to be mixing steps 3,4 and 5, thus your command is incorrect.

    I suggest Option 1 is easier.

    If you still have problems, please repost listing each specific step and saying which option from the tutorial you are using. Thanks.

    dalchina - all is now well...

    After reading some stuff on the 'net some time back I got the impression that the Windows PowerShell(Admin) was the same as an elevated command prompt - it obviously doesn't work that way...

    Typing command prompt in the search box and subsequently right clicking to select run as administrator brings up the elevated command prompt of course, from where I can run the appropriate commands as they appear in the Tutorials. I now have the computer effectively dual booting - Windows 10 or Safe Mode, which is good.

    Thanks again for your patience, I appreciate it!

    Great. Many things you can do at a Powershell prompt just like a command prompt. But of course much more too.
