Forum Problem to Posted Solution and Article Post

When I was new to the PowerShell community, I introduced myself by way of reading and replying to forum questions. It was mainly at Microsoft’s TechNet and it was always about PowerShell. As much as I was able to help, I was also able to learn. For every topic in which I couldn’t offer assistance was an opportunity to learn from someone else that could. As time progressed, so did my PowerShell skills, as well as the percentage of questions I could answer.

When I started writing about PowerShell in mid 2014, I did less and less work on the forums. As a part of getting some name recognition again, I’ve been looking at Stack Overflow, the forum here at, TechNet/MSDN, and Reddit. I plan to use a part of 2020 to get back into that aspect of sharing and helping with PowerShell. This isn’t what this article is about so much, but instead it’s about a question that I recently answered that I want to share. That reminds me. During some point of my earlier days in the PowerShell community, I wrote and answered questions at the same time. Some of my best articles, and even some of my functions and code, began due to a forum question and solution.

There’s no difference with today’s post. Go to and let’s explore my newest forum question turned blog post.
