Powershell is installed and ready to use. No action is needed.

Is there something specific you're wanting to do?

Absolutely nothing to it. You logon, you get a command prompt.
Enter (so that the PS console opens in a separate window)
start powershell.exe

Open in new window

Done. Continue as usual.

The Server Configuration utility (Sconfig) provides a text-based menu system that makes it easy to do the following:

Configure domain or workgroup membership
Change a server’s name
Add a local Administrator account
Configure remote management features
Configure Windows Update settings
Download and install Windows updates
Enable or disable Remote Desktop
Configure network settings for TCP/IP
Configure the date and time
Log off, restart, or shut down

Here is a useful example. You can use Sconfig to install Windows PowerShell by following these simple steps:
1. At the command prompt, type sconfig.
2. At the menu prompt, enter 4, and then enter 2.
3. When the installation process is complete, you are prompted to restart the computer. Click Yes.
