    This is my first post so please be understanding with this simple question from a novice.

    I was testing the set-alias commandlet, and think I've now screwed up a commandlet which doesn't work with either the full commandlet name or the alias I tried to assign it.

    I ran the following:

    set-alias get-eventlog el

    I think that I should have written this:

    set-alias el get-eventlog

    Is that correct?

    Unfortunately, I can not run get-eventlog anymore. How can I reset get-eventlog?

    Any assistance is much appreciated.

    Regards, Darren

    It should be enough when you start a new console window. Aliasses will not be saved automaticly.

      Thank you Olaf for the quick response.

      I suppose my next question is – how do I create an alias that will persist?

      You could use a Powershell profile.

      I'd rather use tab completion instead of a lot of aliasses or abbreviations.
