Windows 10 uses Powershell for command-line which is open source and has a revamped UI too. But many people would still prefer the vintage command prompt. You can use both the command-line shells in Windows 10 but by default, you will have to use Powershell. Here’s how to open the command prompt in Windows 10.

Step 1
