# Description
-----------
These commands find the Windows PowerShell snap-ins or modules that added providers to your session. All Windows PowerShell elements, including providers, originate in a snap-in or in a module.

These commands use the PSSnapin and Module properties of the ProviderInfo object that Get-PSProvider returns. The values of these properties contain the name of the snap-in or module that adds the provider.

The first command gets all of the providers in the session and formats them in a table with the values of their Name, Module, and PSSnapin properties.

The second command uses the Where-Object cmdlet to get the providers that come from the Microsoft.PowerShell.Security snap-in.
