    If so, it's running PowerShell even though it's in a command window instead of the usual blue PowerShell window.
    Is there any way to get this registry mode to produce the normal 'blue' normal Powershell window? (instead of the oversized black command window)

    Thanks!, -JT

    Hello JT, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    Done.

    I've updated the add .reg files in the tutorial for it to open an actual PowerShell window.

    Thanks Brink! I just downloaded it and tested the "Add_Shift+Open_PowerShell_window_here_as_administrator_context_menu.reg", and noticed a BIG error is being shown every time the window is opened now... I've attached a screenshot:

    I'm running Windows 10 Pro (Creators Update) 64-bit. Would totally appreciate a fix for this! (we are so close...)

    Well, heck. It was working just fine yesterday.

    I'll look into it, and see what can be done. May have to go back to command window running PowerShell instead for it to be stable.

    Thanks Brink! Really hoping you can fix this! (the oversized command window looks pretty ugly and doesn't distinguish itself)

    Found the cause of the issue.

    If the folder has a space in it's name, then it gives the error message.

    If the folder has a single name with no spaces, you don't get the error.

    Working on it more now.

    For now, I have updated the .reg files to open a command window running PowerShell at the location until I get it better sorted for a PowerShell window.
