Why does this return the first element of my array:
[string] $PsFolder = "C:\Workshop\PowerShell-work"
[array] $Commands = @(
    "\Get PS version.ps1",
    "\List mapped drives.ps1"
    "\Services\ListServices.ps1",
    $ComputerFolder + "\Hardware\Network adapters\Switchboard-network adapters.ps1",
    "Quit"
)
$Commands[0]
but this returns all of the elements as one string:
[string] $PsFolder = "C:\Workshop\PowerShell-work"
[array] $Commands = @(
    $PsFolder + "\Get PS version.ps1",
    "\List mapped drives.ps1"
    "\Services\ListServices.ps1",
    $ComputerFolder + "\Hardware\Network adapters\Switchboard-network adapters.ps1",
    "Quit"
)
$Commands[0]
For this switchboard I want to point to several folders to bring a number of scripts together in one place.
