    Note: My original post with the same titel got lost or something. I have no clue what happened.

    Over the years I have gathered a nice collection of modules. Here are some of my favorites:

    dbachecks – SQL Server Infrastructure Tests
    dbatools – automate database development and server administration
    ImportExcel – import/export Excel spreadsheets, without Excel
    NTFSSecurity – manage file and folder security on NTFS volumes
    Pansies – handling color and cursor positioning via ANSI escape sequences
    PoshRSJob – use runspaces to create jobs that allow throttling and quicker execution of commands
    PowerLine – richer output and prompts
    PSEverything – Powershell access to Everything for fast file system searches
    PSLogging – creates and manages log files for your scripts
    PSWindowsUpdate – Windows Update Client
    SNMP – manage systems using SNMP
    SqlServer – automate database development and server administration
    Universal Dashboard – cross-platform module for developing websites and REST APIs
    VMware.PowerCLI – manage Vmware environments
    Z – quickly navigate the file system based on your cd command history

    I know there are definitely some gems I am missing or I should switch from one to another.
    What are some of your favorite modules?
    Did you write one you like to share?
    Do you know a nicely curated list of awesome ones?

    Great topic.

    Policy File Editor (local Group Policy) (still don't know how to use get-gpregistryvalue) Wish there was an actual PrintManagement one. Wish the snmp one would resolve hostnames and handle bits (more than 8).

    I could use a replacement for test-connection with a timeout option.
