    I'm starting to create a shared_variables.ps1 file where I want to store general variables that I will use in other scripts.
    Then on the other scripts I just call that file and it imports all the variables to it.

    I just want an idea of how to do it on PowerShell... my friend did it on Bash and it worked nice.

    If you like to have it all your Powershell sessions you could put it to your personal profile or to the all users profile.

      Olaf Soyk,

      Nevermind... Don Jones already gave me the answer below.
      Thanks for you two!

    You could also dot-source it. That said, this is kind of a horrible practice. PowerShell isn't Bash, and what you're doing is loading up the global scope (which isn't even a concept in Bash) and setting up plenty of potential conflicts. Applying Bash-style techniques in PowerShell is just going to make it harder to use PowerShell the way it was designed.
