PowerShell provides several Location-cmdlets for the work with directory paths. This post will show you a useful task for these commands. But this is only one cool thing you can do with the cmdlets and it’s meant to encourage you to experiment on your own.
When we open a PowerShell console, it will show us the actual working directory. If we want to identify this directory out of a script, we can do that with Get-Location. So far this corresponds to pwd on Linux or %~dp0 in a Windows batchscript.
PS D:\> Get-Location
But Get-Location provides more functionality: we can get the “actual” working path for an other drive or provider, e. g. the registry.
