Change the prompt in powershell

Hello everyone,

short post this week. Was working on another post but not really satisfied with it. So you get this short intermission.

What i learned not to long ago ist, that you are able to change you prompt in powershell. You have to put a function named prompt into your Powershell Profile.


function prompt {"PS: $(get-date) / $PWD \n >"}

Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

And after the next start you will get the changed prompt:

Alt Text

By the way a line break in powershell is written like this:

"`n"
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

The double quotes are important, if you use single quotes it will not work.
