Powershell Quick Hit - Out Gridview

Bring up a PS prompt, and type $a = $env:windir

You just assigned $a to your Windows directory.

You could just as easily have done $a = C:\Windows, but I thought I'd throw 2 tips in for the price of one. :)

Just to verify, do:

get-childitem $a (or dir $a, or ls $a, or gci $a...)

and you should see the contents of your windows directory. Now here comes the fun part. Are ya ready?

pipe that to "out-gridview"

get-childitem $a | out-gridview

And watch what happens.

See the "Add Criteria" button at the top? Press it, select all the options. Cool eh??
