    Command prompt is a bit depreciated now and MS are trying to switch people to use powershell, just like the move from control panel to settings.

    There are some "solutions" here.

    I'm not sure if it's possible to change File Explorer's 'open PowerShell' on the 'File' ribbon, but you can add a context menu to open one. See @Brink's tutorials.

    Open command window here - Add in Windows 10
    Open command window here as administrator - Add in Windows 10


    Also, you could just open PowerShell and type CMD to switch it to a command prompt.

    OK, I am one of these "old school" guys who remembers that the folder system introduced in DOS 2 was a big improvement. So when PowerShell appeared, I thought I would find something that somehow "improved" on the 1980s-ish cmd set of commands.

    What I did find was way more complex, more like "real programming" than DOS-like commands. So I sure hope that Microsoft never removes cmd from Windows.
