Always Something New to Learn

Most of you probably already know about Out-Gridview, a great command to output data into a human readable grid. Not great for automation, but sometimes you just want to gather information, or pull a detailed sanity check before fully automating something.

Get-Process | Out-GridView -OutputMode Single | Stop-Process

That’s it for the quickie today. Hope you had fun.
