I've just clicked on the "terminal" in JupyterLab, for the first time, and
noticed that Powershell is launched instead of the cmd shell.

Is this something that can be configured by the user?

Powershell is pain to use and requires much more specialized knowledge than
the cmd shell in Windows. Why was this decision made?
