Windows 7: Using Power Shell?

Using Power Shell?

So I have used Terminal in Fedora and I noticed we have power shell which seems much like Terminal, but what do you use it for? With Windows you can point and click on things I used Terminal in Fedora because I had to do certain updates or app installs that way.

Can I do a software update through power shell? Where can I read how to start using Power Shell.

Please consider these two keys: What is the main difference between these? Say, I've changed first the keys under Shell Folders and then under User Shell Folders. It was only until I'd changed those under User Shell Folders (after restarting the machine) did the changes take place.
