PowerTip: Find PowerShell Providers


Summary:  Learn how to find Windows PowerShell providers and their capabilities.

Hey, Scripting Guy! Question How can I find what Windows PowerShell providers I have on my system?

Hey, Scripting Guy! Answer Use the Get-PSProvider cmdlet.

Note  Beginning with Windows PowerShell 3.0, some providers load on-demand, and therefore, they do not
appear unless they have been accessed at least once. The WSMAN provider is an example of such a provider.
