PowerTip: Remove Spaces from Both Ends of String
Summary: Learn to use Windows PowerShell to remove spaces from both ends of a string.
How can I use Windows PowerShell to remove spaces at both ends of a string?
Use the Trim method from the System.String .NET Framework class.
In this example, I create a string with a space at each end of the word, then
I call the Trim method to remove both spaces:
$string = " a String "
Note The Trim method exists on strings, so to use it, simply call it directly from the string.
