Switching shells using command line in Cloud Shell

When using Cloud Shell, the cloud administrator can choose between PowerShell and Bash from the menu, as depicted in the image below.

Cloud Shell

If you like to type commands instead of using the option available on the menu, then you can type bash to switch over to the Linux shell and use the commands of the platform (Items 1 and 2), and you can always do the same thing to switch to PowerShell using pwsh (Items 3 and 4).

Cloud Shell

If you want to leave the session, you can always use exit on either shell to disconnect the ongoing session.
