PowerTip: Use PowerShell to Find Module to Import

Doctor Scripto

Summary: Use Tab expansion in Windows PowerShell to find a module to import.

Hey, Scripting Guy! Question I know I need the full name of a specific Windows PowerShell module to import it, but I am not sure of the
           complete name, and I do not want to do a lot of typing. The module exists in a known Windows
           PowerShell module location. How can I quickly find the module name?

Hey, Scripting Guy! Answer Use Tab expansion with the Import-Module cmdlet. You only need to know the first letter
           of the module, then you can tab through the module names.
