Powershell Here

Remember the Power Toys where you could add open prompt here? Did you know there is an even easier way?

Navigating the file system isn’t that hard in the Powershell CLI to start with considering tab completion and all of that but there is an even easier way….

In your file explorer window type powershell in the address bar. A new Powershell window will start and as the included video a simple get-location will show your working directory is same as the explorer window you launched powershell from. It may look different than what you expect when starting the Powershell CLI but you can change that with the window’s defaults settings.

 

A quick example (video) here.
