Use Help to Locate a SharePoint 2010 PowerShell Command



You know there is a PowerShell command for the task you are trying to perform, but you can’t remember it. Try this quick shortcut to see if you can locate it:

  • Open up the SharePoint 2010 Management Shell (Start > All Programs > Microsoft SharePoint 2010 Products > SharePoint 2010 Management Shell)
  • Type help and a one word topic of what you are looking for – in this case I need to find a timer job command, so I use “timer”:



    Or another example: help database
