Dynamic inplace syntax help without ISE

Hi Microsoft,
ever used to program a Switch or Router. Not only at Cisco's you can issue a ? anytime to know what you can do next, instead of browsing each command in technet or completely dump your line to enter get-help ... this is too complicated!

ISE is a help but I don't want ISE all the time. Make your "command line" user-friendly please

    Starting in PowerShell 5 (shipped with Windows 10, Windows Server 2016, and WMF 5), we included the PSReadline module by default in powershell.exe for improved usability. Based off of what you’re looking for, I’d highly recommend trying Ctrl+Space to see all available Tab completions wherever you’re at in your expression.

    Also check out the PSReadline GitHub repo for more documentation on using all of its available features: https://github.com/lzybkr/psreadline#usage

        Joey, I am aware about Ctrl+Space and have only seen it in ISE. It is a great feature you added however I am getting all available commands but no help or explaination.

        example
        get-wmiobject (ctrl+Space) -Class (ctrl+Space) will not list content I could issue for Class.

        Also there is no explaination what -class would do or expect
