Deleting Things

by May 21, 2009

To delete things in the file system, you normally use a command like "del", which is an alias and points to Remove-Item in PowerShell:

get-command del

You can use del to delete a variety of things:

Delete a variable named "test":

del variable:test

Delete a function named "test":

del function:test

Delete an alias named "test":

del alias:test

Delete a registry key named HKEY_CURRENT_USERTest:

del HKCU:Test

You should remember to use the -force parameter if the item you want to delete is write-protected.
