How Do I Use the Windows 8 PowerShell Feature?

Apart from the traditional command line interface (CLI) that was also available in all earlier versions of Windows operating systems, Windows 8 also has PowerShell. Although PowerShell has command line interface as well, it serves major 3 purposes to advanced users:

  1. It allows administrators to execute simple DOS commands such as DIR, MD, etc.
  2. It is a scripting language that allows administrators to create and run the scripts to automate many administrative tasks.


Note: In order to run a script from Windows PowerShell, users must create a script using Notepad and saving it with .PS1 extension.
