    I suspected it was something like that.
    Would you please update the tutorial (and the one for Bash (not admin) to state this, and provide the instructions (or a link to it) for how to do that?

    It's in the yellow note box at the top of the tutorial.

    I thought this would be a nice addition as I run Linux on another machine. I enabled WSL, but on discovering I needed to install a Linux distro I decided against it. I don't have a terribly large HDD and it's a lot of HDD real estate to use just to be able to use a bash shell.

    A good side effect of this though is, that using the Open Bash window here as administrator selection allows me to open the Command prompt easily as Administrator. This handy for me as I have my start menu set to show Powershell instead of Command prompt, so I get to have my cake and eat it too!

    Many thanks!

    Thanks for that. It's a neater alternative to what I had. I ran the .reg file to delete the bash option first before running this one.
