I have been using VIFM on windows for a bit. By default CMD cannot cd into a server, where PowerShell can. Is there a way to change the shell in VIFM from CMD to PowerShell?

Thanks and appreciate the help!

You can change 'shell' option:

set shell=pwsh

This will use it for running most external commands (:!, :filetype, :fileviewer, system(), :shell).

Or you can do:

let &shell = 'pwsh'

And this will only affect :shell.
