Install PowerShell Core 6.0

In this article, I’ll show you how to Install the latest PowerShell Core 6.0 beta 4 version and test it.

PowerShell Core 6.0 Is a cross platform tool for automation and configuration and can be Installed on any platform (Windows, Linux, Docker, etc).

If you Install it on Windows it won’t affect existing PowerShell version and it will be Installed as a separate application.

To get started, Download the .MSI file and Install it on your machine.
