Rename-ItemProperty - Powershell 1.0 CmdLet
Microsoft Windows PowerShell is a command-line shell and scripting tool based on the Microsoft .NET Framework. It is designed for system administrators, engineers and developers to control and automate the administration of Windows and applications.
More than hundred command-line tools (so called "cmdlets") can be used to perform system administration tasks and Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI). These cmdlets are easy to use, with standard naming conventions and common parameters, and standard tools for piping, sorting, filtering, and formatting data and objects.
Description Rename a property of an item Usage Options -path string The path(s) to the item to be renamed. Wildcards are permitted. -literalPath string Like Path above, only the value is used exactly as typed. No characters are interpreted as wildcards. If the path includes any escape characters then enclose the path in single quotation marks. -name string The name(s) of the property to rename. -newName string The new name for the property. -passThru Pass the object created by Rename-ItemProperty along the pipeline. -force Override restrictions that prevent the command from succeeding, apart from security settings. -filter string A filter in the provider's format or language. The exact syntax of the filter (wildcard support etc) depends on the provider. Filters are more efficient than -include/-exclude, because the provider applies the filter when retrieving the objects, rather than having PowerShell filter the objects after they are retrieved. -include string Include only the specified items from the Path. e.g. "May*" this only works when the path includes a wildcard character. -exclude string Omit the specified items from the Path e.g. "*SS64*" this only works when the path includes a wildcard character. -credential PSCredential Use a credential to validate access to the file. Credential represents a user-name, such as "User01" or "Domain01\User01", or a PSCredential object, such as the one retrieved by using the Get-Credential cmdlet. If you type a user name, you will be prompted for a password. CommonParameters: -Verbose, -Debug, -ErrorAction, -ErrorVariable, -OutVariable. Example(s) Rename the config registry entry contained in the HKLM\Software\SS64 key to oldconfig: PS C:\>rename-itemproperty -path HKLM:\Software\SS64 ` -name config -newname oldconfig
