Is it possible to execute multiple scripts in PowerShell ISE? I'm unable to run a new script, while another is running. I open multiple PowerShell instances to achieve this. Is there an easier way to do this?

Sure, you just have to press Control-T, or go to File -> New PowerShell Tab.

Thanks Dave.

I know what you are saying. But that's not what I'm looking for. I can open the new window, but can't run the script in the new window, while the script in old window is still running. Maybe I'm missing something.

Did you actually try it? It works fine for me.

Keep in mind that the "New PowerShell Tab" I'm talking about is not the same thing as just opening multiple scripts. See the attached screenshot; the "PowerShell 1" and "PowerShell 2" tabs can each run a script at the same time.

You-Sir are a genius!

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

In fact there's a difference between ctrl+n and ctrl+t
