Fix PowerGUI shortcuts in Start menu

ISSUE

PowerGUI 3.0 accidentally shipped with Windows Start menu shortcuts being called just “Administrative Console” and “Script Editor”. Which means that if you are used to starting applications by typing keywords in Start menu, you won’t be able to find the tools by typing PowerGUI:

Open PowerGUI Script Editor (or native PowerShell command line), run the following command in the PowerShell Console window:

This will rename the shortcuts for you:
