Resolves the wildcards in a path

Resolve-Path { [-path] string[] | [-literalPath] string[] }
               [-credential PSCredential] [CommonParameters]

-Path string[]
       The main PowerShell path (or paths) to resolve
       Wildcards are permitted. {may be piped}
   -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.

   -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.
       This parameter is not supported by any PowerShell core cmdlets or providers.

      -Verbose, -Debug, -ErrorAction, -ErrorVariable, -OutVariable.
