Summary: Learn how to display your Windows PowerShell Help in a new window.

Hey, Scripting Guy! Question How can I keep my Windows PowerShell Help open so I can look at it while I am trying my new code?

Hey, Scripting Guy! Answer Use the ShowWindow parameter. It will open a new window that contains your Help and allow you to move
           it around on your screen. More importantly, it returns your Windows PowerShell console back to you.
           Here is such a command:

Get-Help about_Classes -ShowWindow
