    Hi

    I have noticed since the last update that where you right click on `start` the "command prompt as administrator" has gone, simple question I hope, how do I get it back or wheres it gone.

    Thanks
    Hello @vidanova, :)

    The tutorial below can help show you how to have the Win+X menu show the command prompt options again instead of the PowerShell options.

    I don't see the advantage of using PowerShell. Looks like a lot of mess to go through to do the same thing with a simple admin command prompt. Thanks anyway ...

    Hi All

    I have followed Brinks tutorial and changed my `shell prompt` back to `command prompt` which I`m more familiar with and works fine for me now, so thanks to all as always for very quick and interesting responses.

    Start using some powershell and you will see the advantage. For example, lets say you are at command line and wonder what processes are chewing up your CPU. You could launch task manager, or from powershell you could run the following and get the top 10 processes
    get-process|sort CPU -desc|select-object -first 10

    Want to know which process is taking the most memory, just change CPU to ws
    get-process|sort ws -desc|select-object -first 10

    Want to know how many instances of chrome are running;
    (get-process |Where-Object {$_.ProcessName -eq "Chrome"}).count

    Want to kill all of the running chrome
    get-process |Where-Object {$_.ProcessName -eq "Chrome"}|stop-process -force

    Are you watching a log file and waiting for something to happen and reopening over and over again in notepad?
    get-content -path "C:\Windows\logs\logfile.txt" -tail 10 -wait

    If you want to change it go to Taskbar options (right click on the taskbar), select settings and then select the option turn off the option that replaces the command prompt with the power shell and you will have the command prompt (2 of them; one is the admin.

    Forget my response as the solution has already been provided.
