Doctor Scripto

Summary: Learn a better way to view Windows PowerShell Help.

Hey, Scripting Guy! Question I like the Windows PowerShell Help files, but I do not like trying to read them in the Windows PowerShell
            console window. What is a better way to read the content?

Hey, Scripting Guy! Answer Use the –ShowWindow parameter from Get-Help. This example displays the About_Automatic_Variables Help:

Get-Help -Category helpfile automatic -ShowWindow
