Windows PowerShell

This free Windows PowerShell book will give you an introduction to Windows PowerShell as well as practical examples, in order to give you a quick introduction to this subject even if you have no significant previous scripting experience.


The book is explicitly not aimed at professional scripters; the extensive Windows PowerShell help and the many Internet forums and additional literature are designed to give experts everything they need. However, the newbies amongst you will hopefully find everything you need in this book to enable you to think about scripting in more detail, and hopefully quickly learn to enjoy being able to operate a computer even without a mouse.
