PowerShell’s Variables

Windows PowerShell is designed to be an interactive command-line shell and it’s also a programming language. A PowerShell script is really nothing more than a simple text file. The file contains a series of PowerShell commands, with each command appearing on a separate line.

If we need to run the PowerShell script using the notepad then its filename needs to save as .PS1 extension.
