In Windows 10 you can choose between having the Windows PowerShell or the Command Prompt on the Quick Links (Win+X) menu.

As of Windows 10 build 14971, the default option is set to show the Windows PowerShell and Windows PowerShell (Admin), but you can still swap them for the Command Prompt and Command Prompt entries if you prefer.

The Quick Links menu is there to give you quicker access to the tools around Windows that you think you’ll need, so you might want to adjust this option accordingly: if you’re someone who uses the PowerShell a lot then you might want to keep the PowerShell options there, but if you’re using the command line a lot then you may prefer switching it over so it shows the Command prompt entries instead.

Once you make your choice, the Windows 10 operating system will remember your preferences on the Quick Links menu until you change them at a future date.
