If like me, you’re not 100% keen on command line, then the Windows PowerShell ISE is for you.
One of the courses I teach is
the Microsoft Windows 2012 Installing and Configuring course, the
Microsoft designation is the 20410B
In the presentation, I cover an Overview of the Windows 2012 Windows PowerShell Integrated Scripting Environment, or PowerShell ISE.
Windows PowerShell ISE is an integrated scripting environment that provides you with assistance when using Windows PowerShell. It provides command completion functionality, and allows you to see all available commands and the parameters that you can use with those commands.
Windows PowerShell ISE simplifies the process of using Windows PowerShell because you can execute cmdlets from the ISE. You can also use a scripting window within Windows PowerShell ISE to construct and save Windows PowerShell scripts.
The ability to view cmdlet parameters ensures that you are aware of the full functionality of each cmdlet, and can create syntactically-correct Windows PowerShell commands.
Windows PowerShell ISE provides color-coded cmdlets to assist with troubleshooting. The ISE also provides you with debugging tools that you can use to debug simple and complex Windows PowerShell scripts.
You can use the Windows PowerShell ISE environment to view available cmdlets by module. You can then determine which Windows PowerShell module you need to load to access a particular cmdlet.
