The full guide of PowerShell that any developer needs to know – Index

In PowerShell (PS) you can use Aliases wich are short name of cmdlets, command, function, script, file or executable.

You can get all PS aliases with this cmdlet:


You can create/change your own aliases, for example:

Set-Alias -Name ping -Value Test-NetConnection

Now you can use ping instead Test-NetConnection

When the session is end you lost all your aliases, so is a good practice to save your aliases in a script or file and import them when you start a new session in PS.
