How to get cmd suggestion in PowerShell like in PowerShell ISE?


Simple question. In PowerShell ISE every times I type a cmd the PowerShell suggests me a list of paramaters or functions automatically. Is there something similar in normal PowerShell. I'm tired to search the syntax in the web...:-)

You still have tab-completion in the console.  For example, type:
Get-Date -<tab>
Each time you press <tab> it will cycle to another parameter.  You just don't see a list of everything all at once.
There's always searchable help in a separate window:
Get-Help -ShowWindow Some-Cmdlet

Open in new window

Or similar, but you get separate tabs for Parameter Sets, and you can fill the arguments in a GUI and then copy them to the clipboard:
Show-Command Some-Cmdlet

Open in new window

And finally, there's the PSReadline module (installed by default since Windows 10, can be manually installed on earlier versions as well).
The one you're probably looking for is <Ctrl>-<Space>
Enter, for example
Get-Item -, followed by <Ctrl>-<Space>
Works for cmdlets, too:
Get-It, followed by <Ctrl>-<Space>
Works for available methods, classes, etc. as well.


Open in new window

to see a list of all available shortcuts.
