Set-ItemProperty - PowerShell 1.0

Microsoft Windows PowerShell is a command-line shell and scripting tool based on the Microsoft .NET Framework. It is designed for system administrators, engineers and developers to control and automate the administration of Windows and applications.

More than hundred command-line tools (so called "cmdlets") can be used to perform system administration tasks and Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI). These cmdlets are easy to use, with standard naming conventions and common parameters, and standard tools for piping, sorting, filtering, and formatting data and objects.

Usage


Options
-path string
       The path(s) to the items with the property to be set.
       Wildcards are permitted.
		
   -literalPath string
       Like Path above, only the value is used exactly as typed.
       No characters are interpreted as wildcards. If the path includes any
       escape characters then enclose the path in single quotation marks.

   -name string
       The name(s) of the property.

   -value Object
       The value of the property.

   -inputObject psobject
       The name of the properties to set.
		
   -include string
       Include only the specified items from the Path. e.g. "May*"
       this only works when the path includes a wildcard character.
        
   -exclude string
       Omit the specified items from the Path e.g. "*SS64*"
       this only works when the path includes a wildcard character.
        
   -filter string
       A filter in the provider's format or language. 
       The exact syntax of the filter (wildcard support etc) depends on the provider.
       Filters are more efficient than -include/-exclude, because the provider
       applies the filter when retrieving the objects, rather than having 
       PowerShell filter the objects after they are retrieved.

   -force
       Override restrictions that prevent the command from succeeding, apart
       from security settings. e.g. rename an existing file.
	   
   -credential PSCredential
       Use a credential to validate access to the file. Credential represents
       a user-name, such as "User01" or "Domain01\User01", or a PSCredential
       object, such as the one retrieved by using the Get-Credential cmdlet.
       If you type a user name, you will be prompted for a password.

   CommonParameters:
      -Verbose, -Debug, -ErrorAction, -ErrorVariable, -OutVariable.

Example(s)
Set a value of abc123 into the (default) key of HKCU:\Software\SS64

PS HKCU:\>set-itemproperty -path HKCU:\Software\SS64 -name '(Default)' -value 'abc123'
