Windows PowerShell has Stopped Working on W10/11

1. Initiate a clean boot

2. Disable and re-enable Windows PowerShell

Press Windows + R to open Run, enter appwiz.cpl in the text field, and click OK.

From the left panel of the main window, click on Turn Windows features on or off.

Scroll down, locate the Windows PowerShell entry, uncheck the option and then click OK.

Restart the computer for the changes to come into effect.

Once the PC turns on, head back to the Windows Features window, tick the checkbox for Windows PowerShell, and click OK to re-enable it.

Wait for it to install.

After re-enabling the feature, check if the Windows Powershell stopped working issue is resolved.

3. Create a new Microsoft account

4. Reset Powershell to default (Windows 11)

Press Windows + E to launch File Explorer, paste the following path in the address bar while replacing Username with the one on your device, and hit Enter:

C:\Users\Username\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Windows PowerShell

Now, select the Windows PowerShell entry, and hit the Del key to delete it. Choose the appropriate response in case a confirmation prompt show up.

Now, create a new user account on the same computer, head down the same path, and copy the PowerShell shortcut to a USB drive.

Next, go back to the initial account, navigate to the Windows PowerShell folder, and paste the PowerShell shortcut here.
