Hey, Scripting Guy! Answer Import all the modules, then use the Get-Command cmdlet to retrieve all cmdlet information, and group by noun. You can also use the following commands to sort the results by count.

Note   Gmo is an alias for Get-Moduleipmo is an alias for Import-Modulegcm is an alias for Get-Commandgroup is an alias for Group-Objectsort is an alias for Sort-Object, and more is a Windows PowerShell function.)
