Over the years, I have supported and created multiple types of GUIs. I finally decided a few years ago to create a very simple menu driven PowerShell GUI. I wanted something that was very powerful yet very simple to maintain. I really enjoy automating manual administrative tasks, so that is what drove this project in the first place. Before I created the menu driven PowerShell GUI, I had directories and directories of very specific scripts to do specific tasks. I decided to standardize and consolidate all of those scripts into one menu driven PowerShell GUI. By doing this, I took the guess work out of determining which PowerShell script to run for a given task. This has greatly helped my colleagues know exactly what to run and how.
