    Simple WIN + R > CMD works, too.
    A desktop shortcut to cmd.exe set to "Run as Administrator" works every time and with less effort. Plus MS changing the default command program becomes a non-issue.

    Maybe just my machine, but that opens an un-elevated command prompt.
    That's the same for everyone.
    I wish MS would have removed "Command Prompt'', kept Command Prompt Admin" and added "Powershell Admin" to that taskbar.

    Cheers,

    Well, Larc, it may become a non-issue for TF geeks, but there are a few gazillion folks out there who aren't quite as savvy as the rest of us are.

    I just right click on PowerShell (ISE) and then click Run as Administrator and voila!

    The same happens when CMD is run from PowerShell:

    If you want a command line or really need a command line, in Powershell type cmd and enter. Voila!
    To run elevated CMD type CMD in Cortana, right click and select Run as admin, or run CMD from elevated PowerShell.

    Is there any way to run the desktop ms paint.exe and not paint 3d?

    Hey, folks, it's amazing what you might find when you read the Windows 10 Build 14971 Announcement!

    Looky what I found!

    PowerShell in the Shell: In an effort to bring the best command line experiences to the forefront for all power users, PowerShell is now the defacto command shell from File Explorer. It replaces Command Prompt (aka, “cmd.exe”) in the WIN + X menu, in File Explorer’s File menu, and in the context menu that appears when you shift-right-click the whitespace in File Explorer. Typing “cmd” (or “powershell”) in File Explorer’s address bar will remain a quick way to launch the command shell at that location. For those who prefer to use Command Prompt, you can opt out of the WIN + X change by opening Settings > Personalization > Taskbar, and turning “Replace Command Prompt with Windows PowerShell in the menu when I right-click the Start button or press Windows key+X” to “Off”.

    Fun fact! It’s PowerShell’s 10 year anniversary this week. Hop over to Channel 9 to see some of the videos we’ve been sharing about it. If you’re looking to learn more about unleashing the “power” in PowerShell, this page is a great resource.

    'Nuff said, cuz it pertains to me, since I hadn't gone to read either. A fellow Yammerer posted and I followed his link . . .

    What if I should want both, Andre? I really would like to play with Paint 3D, but I use Paint to reduce photos to Internet size.
