A long time ago I started writing PowerShell scripts using the built-in Windows PowerShell Integrated Scripting Environment (ISE), it's always there for you in Windows and was perfect for the things that I was doing at the time. But sometimes you just need a bit more functionality and that's where Visual Studio Code (VS Code) comes in. In this blog post, I would like to show you some features which make VS Code my editor of choice.
PSReadline is something that I personally use a lot and from starting from Windows 10 (And on PowerShell 6.x and higher) you probably do too! But you can customize it a bit so that you can use more of its features, in this blog post I will show you a few examples of that.
Whenever I reinstall my Windows laptop (Or a new management VM), I have a lot of apps, modules, RSAT Tools, Sysinternals tools, and settings that need to be installed or configured. So... Let's automate that 🙂
