      PowerShell is a command-line shell and scripting language, designed especially for system administrators. Most shells operate by executing a command or utility in a new process, and presenting the results to the user as text. These shells also have commands that are built into the shell and run in the shell process. Because there are few built-in commands, many utilities have been created to supplement them. PowerShell is very different. Instead of processing text, the shell processes objects. PowerShell also includes a large set of built-in commands with each having a consistent interface and these can work with user-written commands.
