    You're most welcome.

    Using this below opened PowerShell v7 for me.

    @="powershell.exe -WindowStyle Hidden "Start-Process -Verb RunAs cmd.exe -ArgumentList @('/c','start wt.exe','-p','"""PowerShell"""','-d','"""%1"""')""

    The Azure Cloud Shell option is for this below:

    The Powershell 7 modification didn't work for me. No window opened. I believe it needs the same modification you made last night to the PowerShell v5.1 entry.

    Ok. I've added a Add_PowerShell_7.reg download to the tutorial to add PowerShell 7 to the context menu.

    This way it can serve as an add-on to the context menu, and the same can be done for other installed shells.

    @Brink Thank you! The PowerShell 7 entry works.

    Two more questions: If I want to make the entries open the standard privilege terminal, I omit the "-Verb RunAs" after "Start Process" and before "cmd.exe -ArgumentList" right?

    About having the windows terminal icon, in the main [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\shell\OpenWTHereAsAdmin] key, if you add "Icon" string followed by "wt.exe" or "windowsterminal.exe", the wrong Icon is displayed (i think it is a blue open icon). If you add the full path to the icon, "%ProgramFiles%\WindowsApps\Microsoft.WindowsTerminal_1.7.1033.0_x64__8wekyb3d8bbwe\wt.exe"
    the correct icon is displayed, but the path is version specific and may not be valid every time Terminal is updated. Do you know a solution to this problem?

    Thanks!

    You'll only need to remove the -Verb RunAs part of the command to not run as administrator.

    I couldn't find a valid universal path for the Windows Terminal icon, and opted to use the UAC icon.

    Good evening @Brink
    Could you please create a tutorial for launching terminal from the context menu with standard privileges as well?

    Thanks!

    I'll add a tutorial for it tomorrow. You should have the default "Open in Windows Terminal" context menu available for now though.

    Great! Thank you! I disabled the default terminal context menu because there is no way to make it extended or add the different options you present in your tutorials.
