The New-Item cmdlet creates a new item and sets its value. The types of items that can be created depend upon the l
ocation of the item. For example, in the file system, New-Item is used to create files and folders. In the registry
, New-Item creates registry keys and entries. 

New-Item can also set the value of the items that it creates. For example, when creating a new file, New-Item can a
dd initial content to the file.
