Also this article helped me a little to solve the issue. I used every single PowerShell to check whether the version shows exactly and these all are same. Thank you so much.

Powershell can be found by right clicking on the start button & it should show it the list, from there you can right click on it & choose properties to find where it is stored on your system. Or click on the search icon in the taskbar & enter powershell which will also find the program.

To find which version of PowerShell you have installed, start a PowerShell console (or the ISE) and type $PSVersionTable and press ENTER .
