    I looked everywhere for this but nothing seems to help ,

    I just wanted some help regarding operators , so as directed by a MVA personell , i did

    get-help *operators* (tried with quotes too)

    and all I get is nothing, it neither gives an error nor an output.  It is happening even with other commands. I have tried update-help , even that doesn't work.

    Name Value

    PSVersion 5.1.17134.407
    PSEdition Desktop
    PSCompatibleVersions {1.0, 2.0, 3.0, 4.0...}

    WSManStackVersion 3.0
    PSRemotingProtocolVersion 2.3

      thanks buddy. I feel so embarrassed for asking such a silly question. Your stuff works but I figured out by doing

      update-help force

      and it works perfect.

    @mridul7arya68 – don't be embarrassed in asking silly questions. Nobody knows everything. We all share and learn together...

    I thought that was a perfectly normal question. Unfortunately you can't use wildcards with help -online.
