Summary: Learn how to shorten the Windows PowerShell prompt.

Hey, Scripting Guy! Question I am concerned that the Windows PowerShell prompt is becoming too long when working with the registry or the
           file system, and I would like to shorten it.

Hey, Scripting Guy! Answer Change the prompt with the following one-liner (remember to add a space at the end of the prompt
           for reading ease):

Function prompt {“My Prompt “}

When you close Windows PowerShell, the prompt returns to the original configuration.
