Feedback

I have written my first script.  From Jerry Lee Ford Jr’s book, the script is the knock knock joke.  And when I run it I get the message “execution of scripts is disabled on this system.  Please see get-help about-signing”.

So of course I want to run the script right away and so I type “get-executionpolicy”  and I see that it is restricted. So I “set-executionpolicy remotesigned”.

 So finally my question, can I leave “executionpolicy remotesigned” ?  Do I need to be concerned about security?  Would I be better off to sign all my scripts?

 Thanks,

Bob
