    Hello,

    Is it possible to set the default windows shell to powershell 7 preview?

    example windows+x then powershell actually launching powershell 7 not the previous 5.1 that comes stock with windows.

    Thanks,
    -Kurt

    Powershell versions don’t simply appear, they have to be downloaded and installed. Each version that’s installed is the only one available to run, as far as I can tell. While there may be some compatibility level to execute instructions as an older version of PS, I’ve never seen that advertised–maybe because each version is supposed to include all the older functionality while adding new.

    So once you install version 7 (Nov saw the release of Preview 6, and Release Candidate wasn’t out yet), that will be the version which runs when invoked.
