PowerTip: Create Sortable GUI List of Files with PowerShell

Doctor Scripto

Summary: Use Windows PowerShell to display a filterable GUI list of files.

Hey, Scripting Guy! Question How can I use Windows PowerShell to filter a list of files using a graphical user interface?

Hey, Scripting Guy! Answer Use the Get-ChildItem cmdlet to obtain a directory list, select all of the properties and pipe the output
           to the Out-GridView cmdlet, for example:

dir c:\fso | select * | ogv

Note  Dir is an alias for Get-ChildItem and ogv is an alias for Out-GridView.
