    You need to begin reading through documentation that came with PowerShell. I'm not a Windows programmer at all and it only took me a few minutes scanning the table of contents figure out I could do things like this: PS C:\Documents and Settings\TomL> get-help CommonParameter | Out-Host -Paging I first learned how to start PowerShell, then learned about , and finally tried . Today is the first time I've even looked at the documentation much less tried using PowerShell. That's what looking at documentation can do, especially a table of contents. . Tom

    Hmmm... now to learn how this editor works... Part of that should have said "I first learned how to start PowerShell, then learned about [get-help], and finally tried [Out-Host]." . Tom
