Customize your PowerShell Environment

I recommend you customize your PowerShell environment by editing your Profile. As administrator in PowerShell edit your profile file with:

notepad $profile

Add the following lines to the profile:

new-alias edit "C:\Program Files\Notepad++\notepad++.exe"

remove-item alias:curl

function prompt {
	$ptp = (get-location).path -replace 'Microsoft\.PowerShell\.Core\\FileSystem\:\:',''
	$ptp = 'PS ' + $ptp + '> '

remove-item alias:history
function hist {edit -n999999999 (Get-PSReadlineOption).HistorySavePath}
new-alias history hist
set-location <to wherever you want to start>
