    Hello Powershell Gurus,
    I am beginner to powershell so pardon me if this is a lame question.
    If I try to use

    Get-Help Get-ADUser -Showwindow

    This opens up a window but it does not have the detailed contents that I would usually see when I use:

    Get-Help Get-ADUser -Full 

    Is there a way to open up window for help and get the "full" help?

    If you're seeing this in PowerShell v5, this is a known bug. I'm not sure if the fix will make it into the PS5 RTM (which is coming up pretty soon, I think), but it'll be patched at some point.

    In the short term, you can just use Get-Help -Online instead, assuming you have internet access. It'll open up the latest version of the command's help in your web browser.
