I want to say that the change occurred either at Version 1909 or 2004, but don't remember now. It was a part of a feature update and everyone had PowerShell as the default immediately afterward.
I set that toggle off within days of whichever Feature Update is was that introduced it and defaulted the toggle to ON.
That's why I said Command Prompt or PowerShell in reference to what is in the menu brought up by WinKey+X. I don't know who has this setting toggled in which direction, but an elevated Command Prompt or an elevated PowerShell will have Administrator as part of its window frame.
As Luke has noted, the actual command prompt you receive in the Command Prompt session will be your home directory for a regular session or C:\Windows\system32 for an elevated session.
In PowerShell, the actual command prompt is prefixed with PS before either your home directory in a regular session, or C:\Windows\system 32 in an elevated session. I am using PowerShell 7, the latest version, when I use PowerShell at all. I still favor Command Prompt just because it's familiar.

Always remember others may hate you but those who hate you don't win unless you hate them. And then you destroy yourself.
