I love PowerShell and I’ve been using it almost everywhere. I’ve rewritten various scripts using the SQLPS or Hyper-V module, switched from NAnt to PSake as build tool, …

In Windows 8.1 there is even a feature in Taskbar properties, where you can replace Command Prompt with PowerShell.

One scenario where I have continued with Command Prompt usage was Explorer feature, where you type cmd in address bar and it opens Command Prompt in current directory. Typing “powershell” was just too long, today I have decided that I should do something about it. I have created a link using command

mklink psh %SystemRoot%\system32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0\powershell.exe

and put containing folder in Environment’s PATH variable.
