  • Hi,

    Windows PowerShell is a shell developed by Microsoft for purposes of task automation and configuration management . This powerful shell is based on the .NET framework and it includes a command-line shell and a scripting language.


    If you're interested to learn more about PowerShell, I can recommend you to start reading the tutorials on the link below:

  • Scripting language and command line shell based on C# and the Microsoft .NET Framework. PowerShell statements can be entered one at a time in the PowerShell command line shell, or in a script with the statements saved in a file with the .ps1 extension.

  • Hi Joseph,

    Thanks for your question.

    In mid-2016, Microsoft completely opened up Windows Powershell, so now Powershell is not only based on the Windows platform, but also on many Linux, macos operating systems.

    Some features of powershell:

    1. Discoverability, the powershell command makes it easy to see what the command does. For example, Get-Service.

    2. Object-oriented, commands are not text-based, are based on .Net objects

    3. PowerShell's syntax features and keywords are very similar to the syntax features and keywords used in the C# programming language.

    You can go to Youtube Powershell channel to learn something about it.

    Best Regards,
