PowerTip: Explore PowerShell Help
Summary: Use Out-GridView to easily explore Windows PowerShell Help.
How can I easily explore Windows PowerShell cmdlets and then see the cmdlet Help from them?
Use the Get-Command cmdlet, pipe the output to Out-GridView with the -Wait parameter,
and then pipe the results to Get-Help with the –Full parameter.
This example finds all cmdlets that begin with the verb Set:
Get-Command -Verb set | Out-GridView -PassThru | get-help -Full
Note For this to work, you must open Windows PowerShell with administrator rights, and run the Update-Help
command at least once to ensure that you have updated Help content on your computer.
