Mega Collection of PowerShell Scripts

This repo provides 500+ useful and cross-platform PowerShell scripts in the 📂Scripts subfolder - for command-line interface (CLI) usage, for remote control (via SSH), by context menu, by voice (e.g. talk2windows), by automation software (e.g. Jenkins), automatically on login/logoff/daily/etc., or simply to learn PowerShell.

Download | FAQ | Note: the scripts support Unicode - a modern console is recommended (e.g. Windows Terminal)
