PowerShell grid view (Out-GridView) & Integrated Scripting Environment

When working in PowerShell, there're situation where the data is not fully displayed or difficult to read due to the way it was presented. Rather than showing them in a long list, PowerShell Integrated Scripting Environment (ISE) provides a convenient way to present and read them.

Follow these steps to install PowerShell Integrated Scripting Environment (ISE):
1. Go to: Server Manager > Features > Add features.
2. Check the checkbox for "Windows PowerShell Integrated Scripting Environment (ISE)"
3. Click "Next"
4. Click "Install"
5. Click "Close"

To show result in grid view, you can pipe it to Out-GridView.

Example with and without Out-GridView
> Get-Command -Module Microsoft.Dyn*
> Get-Command -Module Microsoft.Dyn* | Out-GridView
> Get-AXModel | Out-GridView

Get-Command -Module Microsoft.Dyn* | Out-GridView

Get-Command -Module Microsoft.Dyn*

Get-AXModel | Out-GridView
