Get-ItemProperty - PowerShell command help and examples

Gets the properties of a specified item. (Get-ItemProperty)


NAME
Get-ItemProperty
SYNOPSIS
Gets the properties of a specified item.
SYNTAX
Get-ItemProperty [-LiteralPath] <string[]> [[-Name] <string[]>] [-Credential <PSCredential>] [-Exclude <string[]>] [-Filter <string>] [-Include <string[]>] [-UseTransaction] [<CommonParameters>] Get-ItemProperty [-Path] <string[]> [[-Name] <string[]>] [-Credential <PSCredential>] [-Exclude <string[]>] [-Filter <string>] [-Include <string[]>] [-UseTransaction] [<CommonParameters>]
DESCRIPTION
The Get-ItemProperty cmdlet gets the properties of the specified items. For example, you can use Get-ItemProperty to get the value of the LastAccessTime property of a file object. You can also use Get-ItemProperty to view registry entries and their values.
PARAMETERS
-Credential <PSCredential> Specifies a user account that has permission to perform this action. The default is the current user. Type a user name, such as "User01" or "Domain01\User01", or enter a PSCredential object, such as one generated by the Get-Credential cmdlet. If you type a user name, you will be prompted for a password. This parameter is not supported by any providers installed with Windows PowerShell. Required? false Position? named Default value Accept pipeline input? true (ByPropertyName) Accept wildcard characters? false -Exclude <string[]> Omits the specified items. Wildcards are permitted. Required? false Position? named Default value Accept pipeline input? false Accept wildcard characters? false -Filter <string> Specifies a filter in the provider's format or language. The value of this parameter qualifies the Path parameter. The syntax of the filter, including the use of wildcards, depends on the provider. Filters are more efficient than other parameters, because the provider applies them when retrieving the objects rather than having Windows PowerShell filter the objects after they are retrieved. Required? false Position? named Default value Accept pipeline input? false Accept wildcard characters? false -Include <string[]> Includes the specified items. Required? false Position? named Default value Accept pipeline input? false Accept wildcard characters? false -LiteralPath <string[]> Specifies a path to the item property. The value of LiteralPath is used exactly as it is typed. No characters are interpreted as wildcards. If the path includes escape characters, enclose it in single quotation marks. Single quotation marks tell Windows PowerShell not to interpret any characters as escape sequences. Required? true Position? 1 Default value Accept pipeline input? true (ByPropertyName) Accept wildcard characters? false -Name <string[]> Specifies the name of the property or properties to retrieve. Required? false Position? 2 Default value Accept pipeline input? false Accept wildcard characters? false -Path <string[]> Specifies the path to the item or items. Required? true Position? 1 Default value Accept pipeline input? true (ByValue, ByPropertyName) Accept wildcard characters? false -UseTransaction [<SwitchParameter>] Includes the command in the active transaction. This parameter is valid only when a transaction is in progress. For more information, see about_Transactions. Required? false Position? named Default value Accept pipeline input? false Accept wildcard characters? false <CommonParameters> This cmdlet supports the common parameters: Verbose, Debug, ErrorAction, ErrorVariable, WarningAction, WarningVariable, OutBuffer and OutVariable. For more information, type, "get-help about_commonparameters".
INPUTS
System.String You can pipe a string that contains a path to Get-ItemProperty.
OUTPUTS
Object Get-ItemProperty returns an object for each item property that it gets. The object type depends on the object that is retrieved.
NOTES
The Get-ItemProperty cmdlet is designed to work with the data exposed by any provider. To list the providers available in your session, type "Get-PSProvider". For more information, see about_Providers.

Examples

EXAMPLE 1
C:\PS>get-itemproperty C:\Windows
Description
----------- This command gets information about the C:\Windows directory.
EXAMPLE 2
C:\PS>get-itemproperty C:\Test\Weather.xls | format-list
Description
----------- This command gets the properties of the C:\Test\Weather.xls file. The result is piped to the Format-List cmdlet to display the output as a list.
EXAMPLE 3
C:\PS>get-itemproperty -path HKLM:\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion
Description
----------- This command displays the value name and data of each of the registry entries contained in the CurrentVersion registry subkey. Note that the command requires that there is a Windows PowerShell drive named HKLM: that is mapped to the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE hive of the registry. A drive with that name and mapping is available in Windows PowerShell by default. Alternatively, the path to this registry subkey can be specified by using the following alternative path that begins with the provider name followed by two colons: Registry::HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion.
EXAMPLE 4
C:\PS>get-itemproperty -path HKLM:\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion ` -name "ProgramFilesDir"
Description
----------- This command gets the value name and data of the ProgramFilesDir registry entry in the CurrentVersion registry subkey. The command uses the Path parameter to specify the subkey and the Name parameter to specify the value name of the entry.
EXAMPLE 5
C:\PS>get-itemproperty -path HKLM:\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\PowerShell\1\PowerShellEngine ApplicationBase : C:\Windows\system32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0\ ConsoleHostAssemblyName : Microsoft.PowerShell.ConsoleHost, Version=1.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=31bf3856ad 364e35, ProcessorArchitecture=msil PowerShellVersion : 2.0 RuntimeVersion : v2.0.50727 CTPVersion : 5 PSCompatibleVersion : 1.0,2.0
Description
----------- This command gets the value names and data of the registry entries in the PowerShellEngine registry key. The results are shown in the following sample output.
EXAMPLE 6
C:\PS>get-itemproperty -path HKLM:\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\PowerShell\1\ShellIds\Microsoft.PowerShell Path ExecutionPolicy ---- --------------- C:\Windows\system32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0\powershell.exe RemoteSigned C:\PS>get-itemproperty -path HKLM:\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\PowerShell\1\ShellIds\Microsoft.PowerShell | format-list -property * PSPath : Microsoft.PowerShell.Core\Registry::HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\PowerShell\1\ShellIds\Micro soft.PowerShell PSParentPath : Microsoft.PowerShell.Core\Registry::HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\PowerShell\1\ShellIds PSChildName : Microsoft.PowerShell PSDrive : HKLM PSProvider : Microsoft.PowerShell.Core\Registry Path : C:\Windows\system32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0\powershell.exe ExecutionPolicy : RemoteSigned
Description
----------- This example shows how to format the output of a Get-ItemProperty command in a list to make it easy to see the registry values and data and to make it easy to interpret the results. The first command uses the Get-ItemProperty cmdlet to get the registry entries in the Microsoft.PowerShell subkey. This subkey stores options for the default shell for Windows PowerShell. The results are shown in the following sample output. The output shows that there are two registry entries, Path and ExecutionPolicy. When a registry key contains fewer than five entries, by default it is displayed in a table, but it is often easier to view in a list. The second command uses the same Get-ItemProperty command. However, this time, the command uses a pipeline operator (|) to send the results of the command to the Format-List cmdlet. The Format-List command uses the Property parameter with a value of * (all) to display all of the properties of the objects in a list. The results are shown in the following sample output. The resulting display shows the Path and ExecutionPolicy registry entries, along with several less familiar properties of the registry key object. The other properties, prefixed with "PS", are properties of Windows PowerShell custom objects, such as the objects that represent the registry keys.
