Dont. Just hold shift. job done.
Holding shift opens a second-copy of the app. You can use the below on almost any Windows PC, not just your customised PC. This also works when clicking apps in the GUI.
Generic method for all Win10 apps:
- (optional) Pin your apps to the taskbar. Start with common apps (ie CMD) to the left.
- ⊞Win+[number] Open the corresponding app on taskbar (numbered from left>right).
- Hold shift when opening apps to open a second one.
TLDR: Windows 10 has shortcuts to
PowerShell via power-user menu
⊞Win+X to open the power-user menu.
Tap the corresponding keyboard shortcut for CMD / PS.
More Background info:
The Power-User menu will now default to "Windows PowerShell" when you open it and tap a for
admin or i for
Windows PowerShell ... but you can set it back to c for
CMD instead of powershell if needed.
(but I will put a reason to leave it as PowerShell instead of CMD in comments)
