Short description
Gets information about the current working location or a location stack.

Get-Location [-PSDrive <String[]>] [-PSProvider <String[]>] [-UseTransaction [<SwitchParameter>]] [<CommonParameters>]
Get-Location [-Stack] [-StackName <String[]>] [-UseTransaction [<SwitchParameter>]] [<CommonParameters>]

The Get-Location cmdlet gets an object that represents the current directory, much like the pwd (print working director
y) command.

When you move between Windows PowerShell drives, Windows PowerShell retains your location in each drive. You can use Ge
t-Location to find your location in each drive.

You can use Get-Location to get the current directory at run time and use it in functions and scripts, such as in a fun
ction that displays the current directory in the Windows PowerShell prompt.

You can also use the Get-Location cmdlet to display the locations in a location stack. For more information, see the No
tes and the descriptions of the Stack and StackName parameters.
