What’s In Your Powershell Profile?

Shane O’Neill wants to know what’s in your Powershell profile:

This brings me back to the main point. My profile does 3 things

  1. Changes the default colour of error and warning messages,
  2. Sets an alias for notepad to “n” since I use it so much Set-Alias -Name n -Value notepad , and
  3. loads up the dbatools prompt

I don’t import any modules because the two that I use the most are updated so frequently plus I’m currently using PowerShell 5 so they get automatically loaded when I type in one of their commands.

If you don’t already have a profile, read on and see how you can do it.  And over-do it if you’re not careful.
