Use PowerShell Snippets to Save Time and Effort

In this blog post, I will show you how to use PowerShell snippets that will help you reduce the time and effort it takes you write PowerShell code.


PowerShell snippet is pieces of very common PowerShell syntaxes for Loops, DSC Functions, Workflows and If statements that are built into the PowerShell ISE console.

Instead of writing and remembering the syntaxes of these very common operations, you simply search the snippets menu and create them.

Create A Snippet

To access the snippets menu, Open PowerShell ISE, start a new script and press Ctrl + J on your keyboard.

You can also right click on the script and select Start Snippets.

Below, you can see the snippets menu, simply, select one from the list and click enter.

As shown below, I selected a do until statement which is blank and I can start using it.

Success! You're on the list.
