Did you know that you can enable VT100 terminal emulation in PowerShell as well as the Cmd window?
This will allow you to do adb shell to your Android device, and allows you to run “full screen” vi editing on any text file on the device.

I knew you needed tools for this in the past, but was not aware that somewhere in the Windows 10 release sequence this became supported, but is turned off by default.
Thanks for the URL teaching me that final bit!
It certainly is very handy!

4 0 -1 -1
PS C:bin> Get-ComputerInfo | select WindowsProductName, WindowsVersion, OsHardwareAbstractionLayer

Lars Fosdal that’s one of the powershell things: windows < 10 does not update it to recent versions and there are huge differences between versions
