Cmdlet Alias

by Jan 19, 2010

For most cmdlets, there are convenient shortcut names that are the alias names. So whenever you find yourself using a new cmdlet, you should take a second to determine its aliases. This may save you a lot of typing in the future. For example, the next line will get all aliases available for the cmdlet Stop-Process:

Get-Alias -Definition Stop-Process
