Have accessed the command prompt many times in the past but now, for some reason, I get a screen message that says the powershell.link cannot be found. I can still get there by typing 'command prompt' in the search bar but why would this occur all of a sudden?

Not sure, what you are clicking on that produces that error, but.....
Try switching this to "OFF"

Then read this article, which may help address the .lnk problem with powershell.

That fixed the problem. Adding the 'command prompt' app to the start menu also works.
Thanks.
