    Very hard to figure out what you want to do, but PowerShell <=> Command Prompt changing is on the settings panel and you can choose what you want.
    Open Settings => Personalization => Taskbar => find there
    Replace Command Promt with Windows PowerShell in the menu when I right-click the button or press Windows key + X
    Turn it off and done.
    If You want, you can make also desktop icon or pin to taskbar or to main Start menu.. There is no problems.

    If it is really necessary, then add it right-click context menu.

    "NoWorkingDirectory"=""
    
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\shell\cmdprompt\command]
    @="cmd.exe /s /k pushd \"%V\""
    
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\Background\shell\cmdprompt]
    @="@shell32.dll,-8506"
    "Extended"=""

    Typing cmd + Enter into address bar in Explorer should still open a Command Prompt in that specific location. No tweak required, not as fast as right-click though.
