    I now used Settings> Update & Security>Recovery>Advanced Start Up>Troubleshoot>Advanced Options> Command Prompt (Admin) to reach "Elevated Command Prompt". Again Tried Option One & got the same Error Message. I am unable to post a Screen Shot , as I could not manage one with Windows Snipping Tool, which was not available on Screen. Only the Top Strip showed that I am using "Elevated Command Prompt" and NOT "Windows Powershell(Admin)".

    You might see if you may be able to take a screenshot using one of the options below.

    It'll be hard to try and figure out what may have happened without a screenshot to help.

    Thanks Brink, the problem has been sorted out after I changed the Taskbar Personalization suggested by you to include Command Prompt(Admin) instead of Windows Power Shell(Admin).

    I think I'm in love

    I really do not know how to tell you how much these tips have assisted me with all of the messes I've been able to get into with my builds.
    Thank you Shawn for taking the time to do this for all the folks like me that tinker with codes and puters and sometimes mess them up far beyond they are supposed to be.

    thanks for the information +

    Oh, I think I have printed out just about every option of booting up windows that you kind people have ever put out.
    I keep them all in a special RED folder labeled OH S***! NOW WHAT! BOOT THIS! might be a good idea because when one crashes and you have two or three others in various stages of dismantling it is hard to get online to find out what to do.
    ps: some laptops can be converted to M.2 NVMe with the desktop adapter cards, if you cut the cards, use a2.5" box for a frame and attach the 960evo there. It worked with a Toshiba that had a 7th gen I-7 (7770 or 7700) others (Dell) leave a hole in the case
