IT personnel today spend a lot of time on repetitive tasks to accomplish various jobs. Windows PowerShell, however, provides a powerful language that can be used to write and execute scripts, which can eliminate and/or automate many necessary, yet repetitive tasks.
Although Windows PowerShell has been in the mainstream IT pro space for about 10 years now, there are still some IT professionals that still have never written a single script or simply rely on the Command Prompt.
How PowerShell Differs from Command Prompt
PowerShell is much more advanced in terms of features, capabilities, and inner workings when compared to the legacy Command Prompt. In fact, almost every under-the-hood module of Windows can be exposed by PowerShell, thus making it a useful tool for IT professionals, system administrators, and power users.
