Some functions require you to connect via PowerShell, the following is based on the Micrsoft guide here:

Setup for PowerShell Connection

On your desktop PC search for "Windows PowerShell" > rigth click it and select Run As Administrator.

You should now see the PowerShell console.

Start the WinRM service on your desktop to enable remote connections:

net start WinRM

Enable the local account token filter policy:

PS> Set-ItemProperty –Path HKLM:\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System –Name LocalAccountTokenFilterPolicy –Value 1 -Type DWord

Then enter:

PS C:\Windows\system32> Set-Item WSMan:\localhost\Client\TrustedHosts -Value <Win IoT device name or IP Address>
To start a session with your Windows IoT Core device:

Enter-PSSession -ComputerName <Win IoT device name or IP Address> -Credential localhost\Administrator

Enter the Windows IoT Administorator password when prompted then after a delay if you have connected sucessfully the prompt will return starting with the IoT device name or IP address.

Exit PowerShell session
