Good job Steve!
Good job Steve!
Just saw this! Thanks, essenbe! Off to use the info..
A new video: Windows 10 - Test & Try with No Risk, No Installation needed (for Win7 users).
Video is meant to show Windows 7 users how to test Windows 10 risk free on their real physical hardware, without any virtualization or need to install Windows 10 using a pre-installed 90 day trial version of Windows 10 on a virtual hard disk in dual / native boot.
Very simple procedure, totally free for 90 days, let's you test & try Windows 10 before upgrading.
Full tutorial at our sister site SevenForums.com: Windows 10 - Test Try with No Risk, No Install - Windows 7 Help Forums
Extra credits and kudos to our resident GFX guru @kado897 for titles background and Windows 7 wallpaper.
Part 2 will be the same for Windows 8 / 8.1 users, the process being somewhat easier and different.

New video: PowerShell ISE Basics - Customize PS Profile & Workspace.
InformationPowerShell and PowerShell ISE have by default no profile set. This video shows how to customize the PowerShell ISE workspace and create a personalized profile.
When done even an elevated admin PowerShell ISE or PowerShell may open like this:
When a PS or PS ISE profile for a specific user will be created, they need be stored in %userprofile%\Documents\Windows\PowerShell folder with these names:
PowerShell ISE Microsoft.PowerShellISE_profile.ps1 PowerShell Microsoft.PowerShell_profile.ps1
The profiles may but they don't have to be same.
In PowerShell commands are called cmdlets (pronounced like command let). A cmdlet is usually a compound, a verb and a noun separated by a hyphen. The verb tells PS what to do, the noun with what. Additional parameters can be used.
Examples, all three cmdlets are used in video:
Get-ExecutionPolicy - Check current script execution rights Set-ExecutionPolicy - Changes policy Test-Path $profile - Checks if PS profile exists
In video we create the below simple example PS ISE profile, then copy the same profile to normal PS to get both always open in same working folder and show the same welcome message, both in normal and elevated admin mode:
Write-Host "Any message" - Writes welcome message Write-Host " " - Writes an empty line Remove-Variable -Force HOME - Deletes value of variable HOME Set-Variable HOME X:\AnyFolder - Sets new value to variable HOME Set-Location "X:\AnyFolder" - Sets PS prompt, default working folder
I hope the video gives at least some ideas if it is not able to answer your questions. Please remember this thread is to post videos; if you have questions about the procedure shown in video, start a new thread. For PowerShell and PowerShell ISE related issues and questions, the General section is a good place to post: General Support - Windows 10 Forums
Thans to @Ztruker for the idea.
Very nice, Kari! Of course I'll need to watch again tomorrow.
Very much appreciate your work and assistance, especially with PowerShell. This is another great job!
