PowerTip: Use PowerShell to Find Path for Processes

Doctor Scripto

Summary: Use Windows PowerShell to find the path of the executable for running processes.

Hey, Scripting Guy! Question I noticed a process and I am unsure of what it does. How can I use Windows PowerShell to find more information?

Hey, Scripting Guy! Answer Look at the path to the executable to find information about a process. If it is legitimate, often the folder
           provides decent information. Here is an example:

(Get-Process -Name snagit32).path
