Looking for help is a pain in Powershell. I type something like
execute this and I’m scrolling up and down. Things scroll off the screen and I have to muddle through, meanwhile, my code is at the bottom of the window.
Even when things stop at the end of the page, like the old man pages in Unix, it’s a cumbersome way to work through something. However there’s a better way.
help get-process –showwindow
If I type this, all of a sudden I get a window of help.
I can resize the window, move it, keep it handy on the section that’s relevant when I’m trying to write a piece of code.
A very handy tip I got from one of the TechEd 2014 sessions.
