Examples

EXAMPLE 1
C:\PS>get-service | where-object {$_.Status -eq "Stopped"}
Description
----------- This command gets a list of all services that are currently stopped. The "$" symbol represents each object that is passed to the Where-Object cmdlet.
EXAMPLE 2
C:\PS>get-process | where-object {$_.workingset -gt 25000*1024}
Description
----------- This command lists processes that have a working set greater than 25,000 kilobytes (KB). Because the value of the WorkingSet property is stored in bytes, the value of 25,000 is multiplied by 1,024.
EXAMPLE 3
C:\PS>get-process | where-object { $_.ProcessName -match "^p.*" }
Description
----------- This command gets the processes with a ProcessName property that begins with the letter "p". The match operator enables you to use regular expressions within a Where clause.
EXAMPLE 4
C:\PS>get-process -name svchost | where-object {$True}
Description
----------- This command lists all of the processes named "svchost". The Where-Object cmdlet evaluates the script block, which typically includes a reference to the object currently in the pipeline ($_), and casts the results to a Boolean type: True or False. If the result is True, the object is returned. Otherwise, it is discarded. In this case, the script block just returns True, so all the objects are returned.
