    Windows Key + x should give you a menu with multiple entries, including Command Prompt and Command Prompt (Admin).

    Still didn't work.

    Booted to Safe Mode and ran

    Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /StartComponentCleanup
    Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth
    SFC /scannow


    All ran clean, no errors. Booted normally and Commadn Prompt is working fine again.

    No idea what happened.
