I populate this as I come across things I find useful - I work with Powershell (just type in powershell in the windows start menu and it’ll pop up). A good place to visit for a proper “how to course” for working with the command line can be found here.
##Make new files/directories:
New-Item c:\scripts\Windows PowerShell -type directory
New-Item c:\scripts\new_file.txt -type file
If the item you are trying to create already exists you’ll get back an error message similar to this:
New-Item : The file 'C:\scripts\new_file.txt' already exists.
However, you can override the default behavior by including the -force parameter:
New-Item c:\scripts\new_file.txt -type file -force
New-Item c:\scripts\new_file.txt -type file -force -value "This is text added to the file"
rm folder (will call up options if files are within)
See all files in all folders and subfolders in dir:
Get-ChildItem -Path .\ -recurse
See all folders and subfolders in dir:
Get-ChildItem -Path .\ -recurse | where psiscontainer
See all folders in dir:
Get-ChildItem -Path .\ -Directory
Search for file in dir recursively:
ls *.sh -recurse
