    The MVA voucher 'PowerJump' is invalid.

    Just curious.

    If we can do all the stuff we normally would do in a Command Prompt in PowerShell 3. Why not just have PS3 replace cmd.exe ?

    Excellent content and very funny to watch.

    Before I get too deep into PowerShell, can it be made to give me a list of file properties for jpg files like Title, Comments, image size, etc.?

    I'd like a clue that I'm searching for a tool in the right place.

    I'm using Windows 10 and PowerShell 4


    PS: The intro was interesting enough to get me to ask the question.

    Will I get a certificate on completion of this course?
  • User profile image

    I am just starting out in IT and am about to complete a simple certificate to get into the IT field. I have never even heard of PowerShell until my last class. You guys are going through things so well. I do not understand everything because I do not have that extensive of a background but its enough that even the simple user can grasp. Thank you for taking the time and doing this video, I have searched and searched to find something that was simple and easy to understand and so far your video is the only one that hasn't made me feel like I am trying to learn Alien.

    Thank you.
