I am looking for some documentation on Powershell to better understand how to use it. Per Wikipedia: Windows PowerShell is an extensible command-line shell and associated scripting language from Microsoft. So, I went to the Microsoft.com home page at www.microsoft.com. I typed powershell into the Search field at the very top of the page. I clicked the magnifying glass… waited a few seconds… and NOTHING was returned! So, I clicked on the Live Search option and 39,500 results were returned. So, now when I go to the main Microsoft page and then enter powershell into the same search term field as before and press Enter, the Live search results get returned – filtered for Microsoft.com only. It seems like my Live search excursion “woke up” the main Microsoft website search into knowing some powershell content does exist at Microsoft.com
I have often been frustrated in the past when searching Microsoft support using the exact error or event code from a Microsoft system or application log and nothing gets returned. It just seems like Microsoft is still missing the boat when it comes to search.
So, I guess I will continue to Google for Microsoft support information until I can see that Microsoft is better able to search their own website from their homepage.
Thanks for reading & let’s be good network citizens out there!
