The standard Windows PowerShell, Is a very powerful command-line tool that allows users to automate and troubleshoot an array of administration tasks, such as terminating non-responding processes, working with Active Directory, filtering computer network Information and a lot more. The Windows PowerShell ISE, Is a lot more powerful than Its standard counterpart, hence In this tutorial, I will show you how to add Edit with PowerShell ISE as administrator to the right-click menu.
Whilst the standard Windows PowerShell, Is a powerful utility to perform the aforementioned tasks, some things are simply not available, and that's where PowerShell ISE comes Into action. For Instance, you can test, write and execute scripts that otherwise cannot be done using the standard PowerShell.
As such, I will demonstrate how to add the Edit with PowerShell ISE as administrator to the right-click context menu. To do this, I will use a neat little Registry file that will automatically add the entries to the Windows Registry, and apply the PowerShell ISE to the right-click thereafter.
I have provided the download links to the Registry file, at the end of this article. So without further ado, let's rip Into this tutorial.
Step One:Once you've downloaded the file, extract Its contents to a folder of your choice, and double-click the Add PowerShell ISE.reg file. It will prompt whether to add the entries to the Windows Registry, so hit Yes.
Step Two:A message will be returned, confirming that the entries have been successfully added to the Registry, so click OK to finalize the process.
Step Three:I've now right-clicked on my PS1 file named Windows10Tips.ps1, and as you can see, the Edit with PowerShell ISE as administrator has been applied. Let's make sure It's functional by clicking It.
Last Step:As expected, my script has launched and I can now execute a variety of commands as listed on the right pane, that otherwise Is obviously not available when using the standard PowerShell.
Final Thoughts:If you haven't already realized, the Edit with PowerShell ISE as administrator, Is only available when you right-click a PS1 file. Given there are so many tasks that you can perform when using the PowerShell ISE console, It's way beyond the scope of this article to cover the lot. Give It a try, you will not be disappointed.
