Now Get-Help goes to the next level.  I don't know why they waited so long to add this.

You have already installed the update for Get-Help.  It was delivered via Windows Update several months ago.  I could post the usual links and long-winded explanation, but instead I’ve attached a short script that will demo the new functionality for you.  Simply save the script attached to this blog post and run it (.\New-GetHelp.ps1).  The demo works best when run from a full-screen console rather than the ISE.

When you download the file from IE it will be flagged as “remote” and will likely be blocked by the “RemoteSigned” execution policy.  You may need to unblock the file in Explorer.  (Right-click, Properties, Unblock).

Enjoy!
