I installed SQL Server and MS SQL Management Studio and was forced by the installer to install Powershell.  Then I saw when I right clicked a table, I saw "Run Powershell" in the context menu.  When I selected it, the Command Windows opened with a prompt.

What is that prompt? What can I do with it?

Thanks,

PowerShell is a command-line based, Windows Scripting tool developed by Microsoft.  It allows you to perform many administrative tasks from the command line.  See the official Getting Started from Microsoft:  http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa973757%28VS.85%29.aspx
