Previously I had tried to install oh-my-posh prompts and folder icons. It never quite worked for me and I kept trying to fix it on and off.
When Scott Hanselman posted about it (again) in Aug, I had to have a look.
However even this time around, I did not get it 100% correct. Could be my profile file was corrupted. I did try a few things ( uninstalling the fonts, recreating my profile ), however things did not improve.
Finally I came across this post by Dejan Stojanovic and followed his instructions to the t.
And it worked ! I can move on now :). Thank you Dejan (added bonus was the folder icons).
