il nome di questo post mi fa venire in mente “fun with flags” di Big Bang Theory … e forse in effetti lo ha fatto apposta 🙂 Scusate la nerdata, ma serve a me per ricordarmi delle cose. Ciaooo 🙂

At the PowerShell Jumpstart event there were a lot questions asking how Jeffrey Snover managed to get a dollar sign – $ – as his prompt. A lot of them centred on asking if this was a PowerShell v4 thing.

Its not a V4 thing. You have been able to change the prompt since v1. 

The PowerShell prompt is by default the path of your current folder. This can easily take half the width if the screen if if you are several layers deep

You can change the PowerShell prompt by running a prompt function. For instance to change the prompt to a dollar sign

PS C:\Windows\system32> function prompt {
>> “$ ”
>> }

I move the folder information into the header

$ function prompt {
>> “$ ”
>> $host.ui.RawUI.WindowTitle = $(get-location)
>> }

Other useful tricks – are you running 32 bit or 64…
