Hey, Scripting Guy! Question How can I find Windows hotfixes installed after a certain date on my Windows 8 laptop by using Windows PowerShell?

Hey, Scripting Guy! Answer Use the Get-Hotfix function to return installed hotfixes on your Windows 8 laptop, and pipe the results to the Where-Object cmdlet and filter by the installedon property. The following illustrates this technique (? is an alias for the Where-Object cmdlet).

12:35 C:\> Get-HotFix | ? installedon -gt 1/15/2013
