    On Windows 11, Beta, build 22000.194. I have 2 powershell commands - powershell 7 (x64) and Windows Powershell.
    Which should I use, and which one to remove? Can I even remove one of them?
    thanks

    The release version of powershell 7 got updated to 7.1.5 a few days ago in case anyone missed it
    PowerShell v7.08 and v7.1.5 released - October 14

    @Brink - Hi Shawn,
    I didn't realize the release version of Powershell can also be installed from the Microsoft Store: https://www.microsoft.com/store/productId/9MZ1SNWT0N5D

    Didn't see it mentioned in the OP where you have a link for the preview version, so maybe you want to add this option to the OP.

    Installing from the Microsoft Store would make it easier to update, but I suppose that could be a bad thing for some.

    Thanks Shawn.

    I don't know if this motivation to update powershell is mentioned elsewhere on Tenforums:
    Microsoft asks admins to patch PowerShell to fix WDAC bypass

    If it is, feel free to edit this post.

    @Brink,
    Hello again Shawn,

    So we have the powershell 5.1.x which is part of the Windows OS, the the optional powershell 7.x. They both exist side-by-side, if one installs the optional version.

    When would I want to use the 7.x version and why?

    Hello Steve,

    Correct, both version will exist side by side, and either can be opened.

    You could use the 7.x version instead of the 5.1x version for the new features.

    Thanks Shawn, guess I'll have to try and understand the new features in 7.x.
