Clearing the screen in PowerShell — Parv The IT Geek

A quick snippet for some newbie PowerShell developers whilst they start getting their teeth into the ISE is there are two easy ways of clearing the screen. I ahdnt thought about sharing this information but I saw a developer simply closing the ISE so that he could start afresh. I asked him why and he didn’t know any other way and hadn’t spent any time exploring the ISE or learning many PowerShell commands.

If you ever have a screen which you want to clear like below.

You can either type cls which will clear the screen or if you forget that syntax use the clear console pane button highlighted below.
