Summary: Change the Intellisense timeout value in Windows PowerShell 3.0 ISE.

Hey, Scripting Guy! Question How can I display the Intellisense options for a longer time when I am using the Windows PowerShell 3.0 ISE?

Hey, Scripting Guy! Answer Change the intellisense timeout value from the default 3 seconds to a greater value.

To do this, click Tools, and then click Options. On the General Settings tab, in the Intellisense section of the form, click the drop-down list to change the Intellisense timeout in seconds value.
