    Missing PowerShell on r-click start button


    I have seen the fix for this somewhere on 10F, but I can't find it. Right click on start button shows context menu, but on mine the PowerShell commands are missing. If I uncheck the option in taskbar properties/navigation, I get the 2 cmd prompt options, but if check the option to show Powershell, Cmd options are gone and no Powershell options.

    I know I've seen the fix, just can't find it. Jog anybody's memory?

    Thanks......

    I'll be... you're right!?

    Something is changed though because Power Shell shortcuts which used to be in the default WinX folder now reside in the 'Start Menu' folder!?

    Verified with handy-dandy Classic Shell... Ok, though. With the KB from yesterday, it can be pinned to start menu! And works! Second one is the admin version....

    Missing right-click start button


    I jumped into the middle of your explanation on restoring the right-click on Start Key.

    I have found Winx, Group3 which contains two Command Prompts and two Windows PowerShall.

    Now what?

    Thank for any help...
