    How to Install PowerShell Core on Windows


    Over the years, there have been many releases of PowerShell. Initially, Windows PowerShell was built on the .NET Framework and only worked on Windows systems.

    With the current release, PowerShell Core uses .NET Core 2.x as its runtime. PowerShell Core is a cross-platform (Windows, Linux, and macOS) automation and configuration tool/framework that works well with your existing tools and is optimized for dealing with structured data (e.g. JSON, CSV, XML, etc.), REST APIs, and object models. It includes a command-line shell, an associated scripting language and a framework for processing cmdlets. PowerShell Core is an Open Source project on GitHub.

    PowerShell Core is a separate version of PowerShell that does not replace or upgrade the Windows PowerShell included in Windows by default. PowerShell Core can run side-by-side with Windows PowerShell.

    For more details about PowerShell Core, see:
    This tutorial will show you how to install the latest release of PowerShell Core in Windows 7, Windows 8, and Windows 10.

    *note You must be signed in as an administrator to install PowerShell Core.

    PowerShell Core Question

    PowerShell Core installs side by side with Powershell on Windows, and is officially supported on the following platforms in all Editions (Home, Pro, Enterprise):

    Windows 7, 8.1, and 10

    Another great plus is that Powershell Core is cross platform . . .

    PowerShell Core Question

    Hi,i just found out that PowerShell core now exists, so my question is if one day a now major windows 10 update will eventually see the official release of PowerShell core where it's standard on windows 10,since its not intended to replace windows PowerShell,and
    it will be working alongside the main windows PowerShell,i went and downloaded the 6.1.0 pre-release,also,can I run this on the home edition of windows 10,or is only for the pro and enterprise edition,and should I wait instead of installing it until its officially
    releases and integrated into windows?
