How to bypass execution policy temporarily in PowerShell

The latest Windows PowerShell version installed in Windows 10 and Windows Server 2019 is PowerShell 5.1. Microsoft started to develop a cross-platform PowerShell Core version instead. Currently, PowerShell Core 6.0, 6.1, 6.2, 7.0 and 7.1 are available. PowerShell Core is essentially a new platform that is installed on the computer along with Windows PowerShell. It means that you cannot upgrade PowerShell 5.1 to PowerShell Core 7.1. PowerShell 7 is installed on a computer apart from Windows PowerShell 5.1. The main purpose of the  Execution Policy is to protect users from accidentally running untrusted scripts. The default setting on a freshly installed Windows is Restricted so that no user can start PowerShell scripts, not even an administrator.

  • Open PowerShell as Administrator.
    • Click on the search box at the taskbar
    • Now type PowerShell and press Enter.
    • This action will bring up the PowerShell edition of your preference.
    • Look for Windows PowerShell or just PowerShell
    • if you are using PowerShell Core then run Powershell core Version.
    • select Run as administrator.
