Enabling and Disabling Hyper-V in Powershell
I sometimes find myself having to disable Hyper-V in Windows 10 temporarily in order to run some other virtualization software like VirtualBox. While it is possible to enable and disable Hyper-V in Window Features, I find it a lot more convenient running a Powershell command to enable and disable it.
Open an elevated Powershell window. You can do this by searching for Windows Powershell in the search menu, right-clicking it and selecting Run as administrator
Run the following commands to enable/disable Hyper-V:
Enable-WindowsOptionalFeature -Online -FeatureName Microsoft-Hyper-V –All
Disable-WindowsOptionalFeature -Online -FeatureName Microsoft-Hyper-V-All
Restart your computer for the changes to take effect.
