ADMINISTRATOR
Staff Member
The Linux operating system has long offered more power and flexibility to its administrators through shell scripting. However, Microsoft Windows lacked this flexibility, because of the limited capabilities of the command prompt.

To overcome this limitation, Microsoft introduced PowerShell to efficiently automate tasks and manage configurations. It is built on top of the .NET Framework and provides complete access to COM and WMI.

PowerShell is a tool for scripting and task automation on Windows systems. PowerShell by default has cmdlets, which perform predefined tasks.

There are hundreds of PowerShell cmdlets available, designed to do various administrative tasks.
