Powershell Profile

Colin Smith Colin Smith Profile: Colin Smith

The Powershell Profile is a script that druns anytime you launch Powershell. This is handy so you can ste up variables, add snapins, or just do what ever you like or think is cool when launching Powershell. I was just editing mine, which you can do by:

notepad $profile

This will pull up your profile so you can edit the script. If you would like to know where the script is located then just do a $profile to get the full path. Anyway after I edited my profile I wanted to reload the profile so that all the new things I just added would be available in my current powershell session. Like most things in Powershell this is simple.

. $profile

This will re-run the profile script and now all your new goodies are available
