Microsoft Powershell Scripting

The steps I followed to learn Windows Powershell..

1. The very basic step is to open google and searched for Windows powershell and got redirected to Microsoft Website. To get started with Microsoft Powershell please Click here
2. Looking into Wiki and MSDN site... Got many links when trying for download..Installed the version which is compatible to my current OS. If you are working on XP like me, then you can Download from here..For other OS Checkout this section by scrolling down..
3. After successful Installation and restarting my Computer Started Powershell from commandprompt.. It can be started in two ways.
1. Go to Run and type powershell
2. Go to Command Prompt and type Poweshell.
4. Drive gets changed.
5. First Command is Get-Help... It worked fine
6. Next created a file with .ps1 extension which indicates its a powershell script and executed from command prompt..Its simple type the path of file C:\firstscrtipt.ps1..It worked.
7. Followed this link perfectly and executed all Powershell script commands.

Add this link to favorites as I keep updating this section ?

Will be continued in detail and technical way as per the progress....
