Displaying Folder Tree

by Jun 23, 2017

PowerShell is a friend with old console commands, so the easiest way of displaying the tree structure of a folder is the old “tree” command. It works best in a native PowerShell console because editors often use a different character set. Try this:

PS> Tree $home 

Just make sure you are running this command in a native PowerShell console or VSCode. You can then pipe the result to clip.exe and paste it in documentation documents:

PS> Tree $home | clip.exe
