# NAME
Start-Transcript

# SYNOPSIS
Creates a record of all or part of a Windows PowerShell session in a text file.

# SYNTAX
Start-Transcript [[-Path] <string>] [-Append] [-Force] [-NoClobber] [-Confirm] [-WhatIf] [<CommonParameters>]

# DESCRIPTION
The Start-Transcript cmdlet creates a record of all or part of a Windows PowerShell session in a text file. The transcript includes all command that the user types and all output that appears on the console.

# PARAMETERS
-Append [<SwitchParameter>]
Adds the new transcript to the end of an existing file. Use the Path parameter to specify the file.

Required? false
Position? named
Default value
Accept pipeline input? false
Accept wildcard characters? false

-Force [<SwitchParameter>]
Allows the cmdlet to append the transcript to an existing read-only file. When used on a read-only file, the cmdlet changes the file permission to read-write. Even using the Force parameter, the cmdlet cannot override security restrictions.

Required? false
Position? named
Default value
Accept pipeline input? false
Accept wildcard characters? false

-NoClobber [<SwitchParameter>]
Will not overwrite (replace the contents) of an existing file. By default, if a transcript file exists in the specified path, Start-Transcript overwrites the file without warning.

Required? false
Position? named
Default value
Accept pipeline input? false
Accept wildcard characters? false

-Path <string>
Specifies a location for the transcript file. Enter a path to a .txt file. Wildcards are not permitted.

If you do not specify a path, Start-Transcript uses the path in the value of the $Transcript global variable. If you have not created this variable, Start-Transcript stores the transcripts in the $Home\My Documents directory as \PowerShell_transcript.<time-stamp>.txt files.

If any of the directories in the path do not exist, the command fails.

Required? false
Position? 1
Default value
Accept pipeline input? false
Accept wildcard characters? false

-Confirm [<SwitchParameter>]
Prompts you for confirmation before executing the command.

Required? false
Position? named
Default value
Accept pipeline input? false

-WhatIf [<SwitchParameter>]
Describes what would happen if you executed the command without actually executing the command.

Required? false
Position? named
