Making a cozy PowerShell home
During the Chicago SharePoint 2010 road show (#SharePointRS) Darrin Bishop (@bishopd) showed us a cool admin trick with the below command:
Adds one or more Windows PowerShell snap-ins to the current session.
Add-PSSnapin [-Name] <string> [-PassThru] [<CommonParameters>]
Every product shipping with Microsoft now seem sot have it’s own start menu icon and matching PowerShell console. I’m a simple guy and prefer fewer icons. So I changed my default profile.ps1 file (C:Documents and Settings%username%My DocumentsWindowsPowerShellprofile.ps1) to have all of the cmdlets loaded in one place.
It was a nice time saver for me, give it a try on your machine!
