PowerShell Tab-Expansion

Basically, you can use the tab to auto-complete what you are writing in your PowerShell (PS) cmdlet line.

Here’s some examples:

Then press the “tab” key a few times

Pick the “properties” or “method” you want to use to complete the cmdlet and run.

Now, using the one of the third-party PowerShell tools available on the Internet such as”PowerShellPlus”, you can take advantage of the Tab-expansion features in a graphical way.

A pull-down list will be available similar to the auto-completion features available in Visual Studio.

If you want to check out the “PowerShellPlus” tool, here the link: http://www.powershell.com/
