I would like to add a keyboard shortcut for Command Prompt (CMD), for example if I to have it as [Win+C] or something similar.
Is this possible?
Thanks

Hello Haikgh. Welcome to EightForums.
Or when looking at the start screen, press c and select what you want

If you need it as administrator or "elevated" use Win+X.

Guys thank you very much for responses. I forgot to mention that I need that keyboard shortcrust to be for an elevated CMD!
How do I do that ?

You can click on advanced (from my post), check the "Run as administrator" option, click OK then Apply.
Check the keyboard shortcut again, it should launch the elevated CMD instead.

I know MrShowdown answered your ?
Just in case you ever forget your keyboard shortcut or it fails you can hover mouse in lower left corner for start screen popout,
do a right click and choose Command Prompt (Admin)

always good to more ways than 1

You're welcome,
If the keyboard shortcuts failed, you can do pcRat's advice above.
