Short description
Formats the output as a list of properties in which each property appears on a new line.

Format-List [[-Property] <Object[]>] [-DisplayError] [-Expand <String>] [-Force] [-GroupBy <Object>] [-InputObject <PSO
bject>] [-ShowError] [-View <String>] [<CommonParameters>]

The Format-List cmdlet formats the output of a command as a list of properties in which each property is displayed on a
 separate line. You can use Format-List to format and display all or selected properties of an object as a list (format
-list *).

Because more space is available for each item in a list than in a table, Windows PowerShell displays more properties of
 the object in the list, and the property values are less likely to be truncated.
