PowerShell and Command Prompt both are very handy and useful tools for all the system administrators out there. Adding PowerShell and Command Prompt to the context menu makes a system administrator’s life so easier.

There many ways to add PowerShell and Command Prompt to Context Menu like registry modification but they are always not too good and easy to implement. I will show you the best and easier way to add both of these tools plus many other tools to the context menu.

Winaero Tweaker

To Add PowerShell & Command Prompt to Context Menu we are going to use a tool called Winaero Tweaker which you can download from the link below or you can visit their Website “https://winaero.com” and download the tool from there.

After downloading the tool extract it anywhere you want and after extracting you will have two files one is called “SilentSetup.cmd” and the other will be an executable setup file called “WinaeroTweaker-0.16.1.0-setup.exe”.

Adding PowerShell and Command Prompt to Context Menu

From the Context Menu choose Command Prompt and PowerShell one by one and click on the Add Checkbox for both of them and click on the Apply Button right below the Add Checkbox. In some cases it might ask you Log Out and Log Back In again or it might even ask to restart the computer.
