    Powershell Missing in Context Menu - FOUND!


    Right-click on start button displays a context menu with a variety of system options. Until 10074, that could include Command Prompt or Powershell. In this build, Powershell seems to have disappeared, but not really. It is on the Quick Access Toolbar just below, or over, the Ribbon, depending on your choice.

    Here is a pic of where it's hiding. Since it's on the Quick Access Toolbar (if you have it enabled), it will appear and start with current folder you are in or have highlighted.

    Click on small down-arrow next to Powershell icon to change where the Quick Access Toolbar will be located and to add/remove other Quick Access Toolbar options.

    Yes, Property page is not working. However, It's not hidden. If you click on File, You'll see Power Shell, Command Prompt etc... there then you can right click and "Add to Quick Access Toolbar".

    Somebody 'misplaced' them in Build 10074.
    You have to copy them from:
    C:\Users\{your name}\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\System Tools\WinX\Group3
    and paste them in:
    C:\Users\{your name}\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\WinX\Group3

    ...then you'll be able to toggle them in the WinX Menu via Taskbar Properties.

    Very good Edwin. One typo though:
    C:\Users\{your name}\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\
    Windows System\WinX\Group3

    Instead of System Tools

    Oops!
    Weird though, when I highlight the address to copy and paste it, it changes the name!
