Learn about Windows PowerShell
Summary: Use Windows PowerShell to easily send output to the clipboard.
How can I easily capture output from the Windows PowerShell console and send it to the Windows Clipboard so I can paste it into another program?
The standard Windows utility clip.exe accepts pipeline output, for example:
Get-EventLog application -Newest 1 | clip
Super Cool Tip :)
Great tip! Very handy.
I never knew about clip.exe, thanks!
Great Tip! I combine this with the GridView so I can filter what I want copied to Clipboard.
Get-EventLog Application -newest 100 | Out-GridView -PassThru | clip
The PassThru switch allows me to select items from the GridView and send them through to the next piped command (clip).
Of course... I could always just paste and delete everything I don't need... but in my opinion, shift-clicking lines and an 'OK' to copy what I want is easier than highlighting, deleting, and repeating lines I want to exclude.
