What is Windows PowerShell?

Windows PowerShell is a task-based command-line shield and scripting language that is designed especially for system administrators. It is built on the .NET Framework. Windows PowerShell helps IT professionals and power users control and automate the administration of the Windows operating system, and applications that run on Windows.

Windows PowerShell commands are known as cmdlets. They let the user manage the computers from the command line. Windows PowerShell providers let the user access data shores, such as the registry and certificate store, as easily as they access the file system. In addition, Windows PowerShell has an expression parser and a fully developed scripting language. It includes the following features – Cmdlets for performing common system administration tasks, such as managing the registry, services, processes, and event logs, by using the Windows Management Instrumentation. It has a task-based scripting language and support for existing scripts and command line tools. It also has consistent design, since cmdlets, and system data stores use common syntax and naming conventions. Data can be shared easily and the output from one cmdlet can be used as the input to another cmdlet without reformatting or manipulation.
