Learn about Windows PowerShell
Summary: Learn how to find all of the approved Windows PowerShell verbs that are in the Common group.
I want to produce a list of all approved common Windows PowerShell verbs. How do I do it?
This answer comes from my new Windows PowerShell 3.0 Step by Step Microsoft Press book.
Use Get-Verb and pipe the results to the Where-Object cmdlet. Match the group property with the word “common” and send the results to Format-Wide. The command is shown here.
Get-Verb | where group -match 'common' | Format-Wide verb -auto
The command and associated output from the command are shown here.
11:09 C:\> Get-Verb | where group -match 'common' | Format-Wide verb -auto
Add Clear Close Copy Enter Exit Find Format Get

Kool stuff, Thank you.
@Srinu Tamada you are welcome.
Where would I find information on how to properly _use_ each of these common verbs? For instance, when is it appropriate to use Get- as opposed to Show- (or even, possibly, Watch-).
I tried help about_verbs and about_ but got nowhere. These would be good about topics to add to the PowerShell help facility.
