Opening PowerShell for Folder

by Aug 9, 2016

Any version

If you browsed to a folder using File Explorer, and then would like to open a PowerShell with the current folder set to the browsed folder, just click the address bar in File Explorer, and replace the path with the “powershell” command.

This only fails if the folder called “powershell” exists, in which case File Explorer will switch to this folder rather than opening a PowerShell console.

You can also enter “powershell_ise” into the File Explorer address bar to open the PowerShell ISE with the current folder set as default.
