Short description
Creates a new variable.

New-Variable [-Name] <String> [[-Value] <Object>] [-Description <String>] [-Force] [-Option <ScopedItemOptions>] [-Pass
Thru] [-Scope <String>] [-Visibility <SessionStateEntryVisibility>] [-Confirm] [-WhatIf] [<CommonParameters>]

The New-Variable cmdlet creates a new variable in Windows PowerShell. You can assign a value to the variable while crea
ting it or assign or change the value after it is created.

You can use the parameters of New-Variable to set the properties of the variable (such as those that create read-only o
r constant variables), set the scope of a variable, and determine whether variables are public or private.

Typically, you create a new variable by typing the variable name and its value, such as "$var = 3", but you can use the
 New-Variable cmdlet to use its parameters.
