Getting Help with PowerShell

by Jeff Hicks

This course will teach you how to use and get the most from the PowerShell 7 help system.

What you'll learn

This course is the second step in the PowerShell 7 Fundamentals track. Once you get PowerShell installed, you need to know how to use it.

Next, you'll learn to find help for a command, task, or PowerShell concept, and be able to interpret the help content and apply it to your work.
Finally, you'll discover how to get PowerShell help from online resources.

When you're finished with this course, you'll be ready to get even more out of PowerShell and better understand why the commands you're typing work the way that they do.
