Export PowerShell script output to Text with Out-Notepad

Posted on March 8th, 2015

Out-Notepad.ps1 lets you redirect the output of a PowerShell command or script into Notepad.

There are a couple of interesting things here. In Line 23, I use [System.IO.Path] to get a random file name. In line 34 I use [Microsoft.VisualBasic.Interaction] to shell out to Notepad and wait for it to close before deleting the file. You can, of course, save the file with a new name.

Please Note

All the scripts are saved as .txt files. Newer files have a "View Script" button which will let you save or open a script in notepad. For earlier posts, the easiest way to download with IE is to right click on the link and use "Save Target As". Rename file from Name_ext.txt to Name.ext.
