Do I have to run "PowerShell" and then start my Node Red Interface?

Or is there another option?

There are plenty of other options for Running Node-RED on Windows.

You could always run it from a DOS (AKA cmd) prompt! :grinning:

You could create a shortcut that started it. Personally I use Windows Terminal (which is default on W11) with a profile:

Of course, I'm only using it as a dev/test environment on Windows as my live version runs on Linux. The Terminal session actually starts Node-RED using the PM2 helper which lets me auto-restart when key files change and helps with viewing logs.

Or you could create a profile in Windows Scheduler - there are several ways to run it from that. Or you could use something like nssm to create a simple Windows Service runner.

Thanks for this information, I will do a little more research.
