I would like to have a tab open for PowerShell inside of my VS2012. There are other consoles that I have access to, such as "Command Window" and "Package Manager Console" Is there any way to get a Powershell console window open? I've attached an image that shows where I would like the PS window.enter image description here

The package manager console is just a powershell window with a few cmdlets automatically loaded.

You can execute powershell right in it.
