This small blog post isn’t really something Tridion-specific. However, with SDL Web 8, installing or configuring the CMS or content delivery usually involves running a few powershell commands. Usually, we run these commands to install a database, or to create a topology, or install or manage the microservices.
Usually, these powershell scripts are in some deep directory structure, and I used to open a new powershell command, do a lot of cd commands (luckily we have tab-autocompletion), and finally you would arrive at the directory where your script lives, and you would be able to run it.
But, as I recently learnt, you can also do the following, which sometimes saves you a few minutes:
In Windows Explorer, open the directory where your powershell scripts live
Press enter, and voila, you have a new powershell window, immediately in the directory where you were in Windows Explorer.
