Right now I'm using the Windows console (cmd.exe) for some easy tasks (as checking my ip configuration or running some applications). But now I heard that there is PowerShell which actually is way more powerful while also keeping the old commands sothat there is no re-learning necessary.
- Does powershell support all commands as cmd.exe does?
- How do I quickly start PowerShell? (something like Windows-Key + R -> cmd)
- Is there any case where I would favor cmd over powershell?
