There’s an old shortcut to quickly bring up the Command Prompt in Admin mode:
- Right-click the Windows Logo (or hit Windows Key + X)
- Left-click Command Prompt (Admin)
But did you know you can swap out Command Prompt in that menu and replace it with PowerShell?
- Right-click the Taskbar
- Left-click Properties
- Left-click the Navigation tab
- Check the box labeled “Replace Command Prompt with Windows PowerShell…”
- Click OK
Now you’ll see PowerShell instead of Command Prompt:

The ZIP file contains a tiny Setup.exe file (2.42 MB) that leverages XML and BAT files to stream the installation bits to your PC in the background:
As you can see from the screenshot above, the bits are available in x86 ands x64 flavors.
Here are the new programs:
