I'm studying Powershell, I wonder why intellisense for Add-WindowsFeature doesn't work. For example, when I try to enable Desktop Experience on windows 2012,
I type
'Add-WindowsFeature -name ', then I expected to list available possible feature names that I can add, but it doesn't.

parameter value for other commands are listed when I do the same, but not for this cmdlet. How can I get the list of windows feature list of it's not provided for powershell?
