Hey, Scripting Guy! Question How can I  use Windows PowerShell to display the time with the hour, minute, and seconds?

Hey, Scripting Guy! Answer Use the ToString method from the Get-Date cmdlet, and use the long time pattern format

    This is what I love about PowerShell so much versatility Get-Date -f t, [System.DateTime]::Now.
    I am curious to why Time doesn’t work in PowerShell.
