    I have been acquainting myself with VS Code editor.
    Still haven't figured out how to "configure it" properly for PowerShell.

    I downloaded (from GitHub) the 64-bit version of Powershell Core 6.1.1.
    It installed rather quickly without any error messages.
    I ran it and found out that it opens a command-line window that looks like ff.:

    'XXC' is my UserID in Windows.
    Would appreciate some confirmation that this is the correct Powershell Core expected of attendees who signed up for OnRamp.
    Many thanks.

    That's pretty much it. There is a PowerShell add-in for VS Code that lets it do syntax highlighting and run your scripts inside Code, and it'd be worth installing that.
