Way to fix if Cannot use powershell command-

1. Enable the Windows PowerShell
This error might pop up simply because the Windows PowerShell is disabled. So, you can tackle the issue by tweaking a few settings as follows:

Type Turn Windows Features on or off in the Start Menu search bar and select the Best match.
Locate the Windows PowerShell option and click its drop-down menu.
Check all the Windows PowerShell boxes, press OK, and then close the Windows Features screen. Finally, restart your device to apply these changes.

2. Run the Windows PowerShell With Administrative Privileges
Opening the Windows PowerShell with administrative privileges might help. So, let’s check out how you can do this:

Click the File tab in the top-left corner and select the Run new task option.
Type Powershell and check the Create this task with administrative privileges box. Finally, click OK to open an elevated PowerShell window.

3. Try Using a Different Microsoft Account
In some instances, this issue might only be affecting the account you’re currently using. So, the best way to tackle the issue is to use a different Microsoft account. If you don’t have a Microsoft account, you might just consider creating it to check if this resolves the issue.

Now, here’s how you can create or sign in to a Microsoft account on Windows:

Click the Windows key and select the Settings option.
Select Accounts and then click Email & accounts on the left-hand side.
Click Add a Microsoft account on the right-hand side and fill in your details.
