PowerShell: change default prompt

reallThanks here



Now PS has setup the $profile file in the right location, edit in Notepad:


function Global:prompt {“PS [$Env:username]$PWD`n>”}



Oh yes, this is a new machine…



Set-ExecutionPolicy -ExecutionPolicy RemoteSigned

(and remember you have to run this as admin)

I’d say that’s a pretty useful prompt – the backtick gives you back your real estate once you know the directory name – thanks StackOverflow person
