When it comes to managing Windows event logs via PowerShell, finding the proper command could be difficult. PowerShell’s verb-noun naming scheme does very little to help. In this article, I’ll show you what to use.
In most Windows apps, the keyboard shortcuts for the copy and paste commands are Ctrl+C and Ctrl+V. Command-line enthusiasts, however, have learned otherwise. Within the console window, Ctrl+C transmits the abort command. Unless you are using Windows 10, Ctrl+V does nothing. To copy a piece of text, one would select it via the mouse and right-click. To paste text, one would right-click without having an active selection.
Now, the question is: How do you paste a script block (i.e., multiple lines of code) into PowerShell?
Windows Terminal is Microsoft’s latest attempt to improve the command-line experience that so many people love. Using the command-line interface (CLI) has always been cool. In the movies, you see computer experts rattling on the keyboard all the time. This image is not far from the truth. CLI is perfect for automation, and Windows Terminal makes it a lot better with tabs, themes, full color support, and advanced rendering.
Two days ago, I decided that one of my computers needed its Windows 10 replaced. In all previous versions of Windows, I’d erase the OS partition and reinstall Windows from scratch. On Windows 10, however, I used the “Reset my PC” feature. It reinstalls Windows along with its device drivers and Microsoft Store apps.
When the so-called “Reset” ended I discovered that my mouse and keyboard were not working. Windows 10 only responded to the power button. I managed to force the computer into booting Windows Recovery Environment, but to my horror, the mouse and the keyboard didn’t work there either.
The “Reset this PC” feature promises a faster revitalization of system. Instead, I had a system that was working before (even if not optimally) and not working after.
