PowerShell aliases, or how to run Notepad++ easily from PowerShell
I have to sometimes play around with PowerShell, and while in there, sometimes I need to edit files. I prefer Notepad++, but found it difficult and slow to start.
So aliases to the rescue. Just typing:
set-alias edit “C:\Program Files (x86)\Notepad++\notepad++.exe”
will create a new alias called edit. And it can be invoked with parameters too. So I can just type:
and wherever I was, it now starts Notepad++. No need to modify path or anything.
Disclaimer: I am in no way associated with Notepad++, nor do I get anything from promoting them. I just happen to like that product very much! 🙂
