How to run your own shell in PowerShell
- by admin
If you have a Windows machine, there are some steps you can take to make it run natively in PowerShell.
It’s easy to be discouraged by the fact that PowerShell is not as powerful as Windows, and if you’re not familiar with how to make a shell run native, you might be thinking about running PowerShell on Windows 10.
But if you’ve never run PowerShell before, you’re missing out.
Here are the steps that will allow you to run PowerShell on a Windows 10 computer and get the most out of it.
Note: If you’re a Windows PowerShell user and have never done anything with PowerShell, then these steps may be a little overwhelming.
If you’ve used PowerShell for years, you’ll have no idea what these steps mean.
But for anyone with a Windows PC, these steps should help you get started.
Install the PowerShell package.
If your Windows 10 machine is a Core i7 or i5, you can use this package to install PowerShell for your system.
Core.6.0.0Install-Module -Name Microsoft.PSRemoting.
Core Install PowerShell to your computer.
You’ll need to create a PowerShell session on your Windows machine.
To do this, go to Start, click Run, type cmd in the search box, and then click New… to create an empty PowerShell session.
You should now have a PowerShell prompt.
Open cmd to open the PowerShell session that you created.
To start the session, you need to press Ctrl + Shift + F9 to open PowerShell.
You can then type cmd to run commands.
You need to select the PowerShell Session for the session.
In my example, I selected the Windows 10 Home folder, and opened the PowerShell prompt with the following command: Get-ChildItem -Path “C:\Users\joe\Desktop\PowerShell” Once you enter your password, you will be prompted to enter the PowerShell username and password.
Enter your password and press Enter to close PowerShell.
Type the following commands to run a command in the PowerShell window.
Get-ItemProperty -Path $env:PSModuleName -Name Get-Date | select -ExpandProperty Name,DateToUnixTime The following command will open a PowerShell console.
Get -ChildItemProperty “C:\\Users\\joe\\Desktop\\PowerShell\\” -Name * -ErrorAction SilentlyContinue If you get a “Get-Item” error message, try running the command with a -Error action.
Get the date that you want to use as your output date.
The -Erroraction Silentlycontinue command will let you continue without having to type the output date manually.
For example, to open a command window with the command Get-Module:Microsoft.
PowerText -Path C:\Users\\Joe\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft.PSGet-Content -Error Action SilentlyStop You can then use the following cmd command to open your PowerShell console: Get -Command line -InputObject $env:”PSModulePath” | select-object -First 1 Get-Content Get-Service -Name PowerShell -Name “Get Date” | Select-Object Name,First 1 -Errorvalue 0 The following commands will open the command prompt for you: Get cmd -ComputerName “C:/Users/joe/Desktop\\PSGet/Services” Get-Command -InputString $env:-PSModulepath -Name ‘Get-Date’ The following command opens the command window for you with the -Input string option.
Get cmdGet-Command “Get -Content” -ErrorValue 0 The last command displays the output of the command.
You may need to use the -Verbose option to see the output.
You will have to press Enter before using the output, because PowerShell is waiting for the command to finish before it can display the result.
This command is written to a file, but it will work on any file you type in the console.
The output of Get-Script and Get-Image are saved to the file, and they can be used to print the results to a text file or share them with others.
