Get-History - Powershell 2.0 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.


Short description
Gets a list of the commands entered during the current session.

Get-History [[-Id] <Int64[]>] [[-Count] <int>] [<CommonParameters>]

The Get-History cmdlet gets the session history, that is, the list of commands entered during the current session. 
Windows PowerShell automatically maintains a history of each session. You can save the session history in XML or CS
V format. By default, history files are saved in the home directory, but you can save the file in any location.
