It may not be something we all wake up in the morning thinking about but to wake up and make your life just a bit easier is something we all think about. probably at more times through out the day.
The PowerShell profile that is going to be covered are both user based profiles.
One is the Shell Profile and the other is the ISE Profile.
both profiles are saved via the $profile defined path.
These are essentially scripts with your preferences, functions, load frequently used modules, favorite variables, and etc.
I have been in some interesting situations where I automated report building into functions. Load specific modules that I use daily and some routine $variables to load that are always the same.
imagine how much time saving it would be to have your cup of coffee sitting and waiting on you in the car already made? that is the advantage the PowerShell Profile provides. A series of tasks, preparations that come automatic every time you click the sweet PowerShell emblem.
if you have network mapped user home folder, your profile can follow you to any and every server/machine you work on.
experiment and have fun with making your life easier.
any questions or comments let me know how you use your $profile !
