Lab Overview
Running Commands and Writing a Script Overview Throughout this series, you’ve been in the PowerShell console. You’ve been manually typing in commands, running them and seeing what comes back. That’s fine if you need to bang out a quick command to do something simple but the console’s going to fall short for more advanced tasks. PowerShell is called a scripting language for a reason - you write scripts with it. What’s a script? In PowerShell terms, a script is a combination of commands all working together to be run at one time. A script can be one to thousands of lines long. When PowerShell executes a script, it starts at the top and makes its way down to the bottom until it has run all of the code in the script.
