Short description
Remove the local computer from a workgroup or domain.

Remove-Computer [[-Credential] <PSCredential>] [-Force] [-PassThru] [-Confirm] [-WhatIf] [<CommonParameters>]

The Remove-Computer cmdlet removes the local computer from its current workgroup or domain. 

When you remove a computer from a domain, Remove-Computer also disables the computer's domain account.

When the computer is in a domain, you must provide credentials, even when they are the credentials of the current u
ser, and you must restart the computer to make the change effective. 

To get the results of the command, use the Verbose and PassThru parameters.
