Thanks Don, I am enjoying it! I decided to type "get-help set-itempropery". I noticed it does not have a parameter [-type] listed. The reason I pointed that out was I recently used the following command set-itemproperty $path $name $value -type dword As far as I can tell [-type] is not a listed parameter according to help, but I used it without error. Does that mean get-help is incomplete or did [-type] actually do nothing? August 17, 2015 at 7:06 pm #28686 Don JonesKeymaster That's a fun thing called dynamic parameters. That one is only available in a registry drive, and because help is static, it doesn't show it.
