When typing PowerShell ISE in start screen opens in PowerShell command line and not PowerShell ISE

I recently encountered a windows 8 bug that took me a bit to figure out the exact root cause, posting it here incase anyone run into this in future.

Subject of the post basically sums up the issue. Root cause was in my roaming profile I had a Shortcut named “PowerShell ISE” which was referring the command line powershell instead of powershell_ise.exe.

How the shortcut got created in my roaming settings completely beats me, if you encounter the same issue you can simply check “C:\Users\[windows logon]\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs” for a shortcut named “PowerShell ISE” and either delete the shortcut or update in properties to point to powershell_ise.exe instead of powershell.exe

Hope that saves someone else time in future
