    Problem Description:
    It is unlogical a lot of get- powershell commands do not include expanded properties of the objects they retrieve.

    for example with the get-service cmdlet: I can use set-service spooler -startuptype automatic
    but i cannot use: get-service spooler and see the startuptype.

    I NEED to use the Wmi object class for this and for people new to powershell, the wmi objects are a tough subject because they are extremely complex (which is good for experienced users) but…

    (Get-Service).StartType was a long-standing request that could not be fulfilled because of limitations in the underlying .NET type (System.ServiceProcess.ServiceController).

    Fortunately, the .NET team added a StartType property in .NET 4.6.1, so it’s available on PowerShell 5.0 in Windows 10 and WMF 5.0.

    Frequency: PowerShell
    Regression: Open PowerShell console Window with many modules available in the PSModulesPath.
    Execute Get-Help about_Aliases
    Wait...

    Problem Description:
    I installed WMF 5.0 April 2015 preview on Windows 7. Any time I try and execute Get-Help about_<pick a topic> it can take up to four minutes to display the help.

    It appears to be the way PowerShell 5 is crawling all the help for CIM cmdlets and loaded modules. If there are 20 or 30 modules installed…

    Frequency: Always Happens
    Regression: Yes, this happens in previous released versions

    Problem Description:
    The process of creating XML help files is documented on MSDN, but no native tools exist to create these. PowerShell is supposed to help IT Pros automate, but they hit the wall when trying to figure out XML help. Inline help is easy. This is hard. Please create cmdlets to facilitate the creation of XML help files and updateable help files. For example, why not…
