    If you set it in your Win+X menu it's a whole lot faster to just do the shortcut

    (Same thing to shutdown your PC)

    @Jilano I didn't know about this.

    Win+X then
    - i for PowerShell or
    - a for PowerShell (admin)

    Switch to linux

    at that point you can just hit Enter and it'll invoke the program

    people forget the search bar is also the Win10 equivalent of the Run prompt now. (The Windows 7 one is still available though.)

    @Konsole I found the Linux junkie

    @iSwimInTheC Just the better alternative. Doesn't have all this shit.

    @Konsole I mean sure. But then you have to deal with other problems too. I've been using Linux for about a year now. Both operating systems have their issues. Grass is not greener on either side, each has missing patches and dry spots everywhere.

    @iSwimInTheC True but they are far less insane. The only reason I see to use Windows would be if u use MS Office heavily or of u use Adobe products

    I just use the commands to open windows apps on windows+r because the search bar never loads

    I prefer using Launchy
    Configuring my own keys and shortcuts it's even accepting parameters..
    It's also index any directory you configuring it to.

    @Parzi it's sadly not quite the same thing as the Run prompt. I have a tendency to hit the Windows key and type "CMD" to launch Command Prompt.

    However there is something installed called "CmDust" (seems related to CodeMeter, for a piece of software I use). Windows likes to run that instead.

    Half the time it can't find what I want to run anyway, especially if something I just installed (have to click it from menu instead)

    Just tried this, it opened a directory I made called power-shell that contains a couple scripts xD
