The default shell is now "Windows PowerShell", which I think was pushed in the Creators Update. PowerShell is a console-based shell as well, but it's different from a classic shell. If you're uncomfortable with it, you can switch back to CMD (Command Prompt) under Settings => Personalization => Taskbar. -- https://mail.python.org/mailman/listinfo/python-list
