Summary: Learn how to find all of the approved Windows PowerShell verbs that are in the Common group.
I want to produce a list of all approved common Windows PowerShell verbs. How do I do it?
This answer comes from my new Windows PowerShell 3.0 Step by Step Microsoft Press book.
Use Get-Verb and pipe the results to the Where-Object cmdlet. Match the group property with the word “common” and send the results to Format-Wide. The command is shown here.
Get-Verb | where group -match ‘common’ | Format-Wide verb -auto
The command and associated output from the command are shown here.
