How to fix error- nodemon.ps1 cannot be loaded because running scripts is disabled on this system

A solution for running nodemon on local machine error on Windows :

nodemon.ps1 cannot be loaded because running scripts is disabled on this system. For more 
information, see about_Execution_Policies at https:/go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=135170.
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

So if you ever get this error, simply you can follow these steps to solve the issue-

Step 1:

Open Windows PowerShell with Run As Administrator.

Step 2:

As you see the error is about_Execution_Policies, first to see what's there in the present execution policy. Use this command on Windows PowerShell to get it

Get-ExecutionPolicy
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Here you'll see 'Restricted'. So, this is the main reason- running scripts on this system is 'Restricted'.

Step 3:

Now we need to change this policy to allow the operation. Use this command to make it Unrestricted -

Set-ExecutionPolicy Unrestricted
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Here you'll get a prompt message. Press Y to change it

That's it. To ensure, you may check the execution policy status by this command again

Get-ExecutionPolicy
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

You'll get the output 'Unrestricted'

The problem is solved. Now you can use nodemon on your machine.
