PowerShell Help Notes

A neat feature I just discovered was the -ShowWindow toggle when using Get-Help. This toggle allows you to redirect your output when using help for a cmdlet to a separate window, thus leaving your command-line screen uncluttered from the help output. Let’s look at an example:

Help-ShowWindow-Main

Notice the items highlighted in the window. The Settings button will open up the dialog displayed below, which allows you to select only what aspects you are interested in seeing:

Help-ShowWindow-Settings
