The Windows PowerShell is used to execute text-based commands for Windows and Microsoft programs. The main PowerShell window looks like a DOS command prompt window. However, it is used to run script commands instead of Windows program commands. The PowerShell can be used to administer a Windows system, change program settings and modify program data. For example, you can send an e-mail using Outlook, convert a Word DOC file to a DOCX file or delete an Outlook contact without opening Microsoft Outlook.
