https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/powershell/module/microsoft.powershell.utility/format-table The Format-Table cmdlet formats the output of a command as a table with the selected properties of the object in each column. The object type determines the default layout and properties that are displayed in each column, but you can use the Property parameter to select the properties that you want to see. You can also use a hash table to add calculated properties to an object before displaying it and to specify the column headings in the table. To add a calculated property, use the Property or GroupBy parameter.
Published Date : Wednesday, June 19, 2019

Get-ChildItem (Microsoft.PowerShell.Management)

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/powershell/module/microsoft.powershell.management/get-childitem The Get-ChildItem cmdlet gets the items in one or more specified locations. If the item is a container, it gets the items inside the container, known as child items. You can use the Recurse parameter to get items in all child containers and use the Depth parameter to limit the number of levels to recurse. Get-ChildItem does not display empty directories. When a Get-ChildItem command includes the Depth or Recurse parameters, empty directories are not included in the output. Locations are exposed to Get-ChildItem by PowerShell providers. A location can be a file system directory, registry hive, or a certificate store. For more information, see about_Providers.
Published Date : Wednesday, June 19, 2019

Add-Member (Microsoft.PowerShell.Utility)

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/powershell/module/microsoft.powershell.utility/add-member The Add-Member cmdlet lets you add members (properties and methods) to an instance of a PowerShell object. For instance, you can add a NoteProperty member that contains a description of the object or a ScriptMethod member that runs a script to change the object. To use Add-Member, pipe the object to Add-Member, or use the InputObject parameter to specify the object. The MemberType parameter indicates the type of member that you want to add. The Name parameter assigns a name to the new member, and the Value parameter sets the value of the member. The properties and methods that you add are added only to the particular instance of the object that you specify. Add-Member does not change the object type. To create a new object type, use the Add-Type cmdlet. You can also use the Export-Clixml cmdlet to save the instance of the object, including the additional members, in a file. Then you can use the Import-Clixml cmdlet to re-create the instance of the object from the information that is stored in the exported file. Beginning in Windows PowerShell 3.0, Add-Member has new features that make it easier to add note properties to objects. You can use the NotePropertyName and NotePropertyValue parameters to define a note property or use the NotePropertyMembers parameter, which takes a hash table of note property names and values. Also, beginning in Windows PowerShell 3.0, the PassThru parameter, which generates an output object, is needed less frequently. Add-Member now adds the new members directly to the input object of more types. For more information, see the PassThru parameter description.

Restart-Computer (Microsoft.PowerShell.Management)

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/powershell/module/microsoft.powershell.management/restart-computer The Restart-Computer cmdlet restarts the operating system on the local and remote computers. You can use the parameters of Restart-Computer to run the restart operations as a background job, to specify the authentication levels and alternate credentials, to limit the operations that run at the same time, and to force an immediate restart. Starting in Windows PowerShell 3.0, you can wait for the restart to complete before you run the next command, specify a waiting time-out and query interval, and wait for particular services to be available on the restarted computer. This feature makes it practical to use Restart-Computer in scripts and functions. You can also use the WSMan protocol to restart the computer, in case DCOM calls are blocked, such as by an enterprise firewall. This cmdlet requires PowerShell remoting only when you use the AsJob parameter in a command.

Clear-Variable (Microsoft.PowerShell.Utility)

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/powershell/module/microsoft.powershell.utility/clear-variable The Clear-Variable cmdlet deletes the data stored in a variable, but it does not delete the variable. As a result, the value of the variable is NULL (empty). If the variable has a specified data or object type, Clear-Variable preserves the type of the object stored in the variable.

Get-Command (Microsoft.PowerShell.Core)

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/powershell/module/microsoft.powershell.core/get-command The Get-Command cmdlet gets all commands that are installed on the computer, including cmdlets, aliases, functions, filters, scripts, and applications. Get-Command gets the commands from PowerShell modules and commands that were imported from other sessions. To get only commands that have been imported into the current session, use the ListImported parameter. Without parameters, Get-Command gets all of the cmdlets, functions, and aliases installed on the computer. Get-Command * gets all types of commands, including all of the non-PowerShell files in the Path environment variable ($env:Path), which it lists in the Application command type. Get-Command that uses the exact name of the command, without wildcard characters, automatically imports the module that contains the command so that you can use the command immediately. To enable, disable, and configure automatic importing of modules, use the $PSModuleAutoLoadingPreference preference variable. For more information, see about_Preference_Variables. Get-Command gets its data directly from the command code, unlike Get-Help, which gets its information from help topics. Starting in Windows PowerShell 5.0, results of the Get-Command cmdlet display a Version column by default. A new Version property has been added to the CommandInfo class.

Export-Clixml (Microsoft.PowerShell.Utility)

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/powershell/module/microsoft.powershell.utility/export-clixml The Export-Clixml cmdlet creates an XML-based representation of an object or objects and stores it in a file. You can then use the Import-Clixml cmdlet to recreate the saved object based on the contents of that file. This cmdlet is similar to ConvertTo-Xml, except that Export-Clixml stores the resulting XML in a file. ConvertTo-XML returns the XML, so you can continue to process it in PowerShell. A valuable use of Export-Clixml is to export credentials and secure strings securely as XML. For an example of how to do this, see Example 3.

You can import data from comma-separated value (.csv), tab-separated value ( .tsv), and binary performance log (.blg) performance log files. If you are using .blg files, you can import up to 32 files in each command. You can use the parameters of Import-Counter to filter the data that you import.
