    Microsoft Windows Commands - alphabetical listing with description, overview, syntax and reference to Web sites when more detailed explanation is required.

    The PDF is well organized. When you click on any command, you will be sent to a location in the 948 page document, that will give you a description, possible syntax usage and available parameters.

    There is also a section that makes reference to Windows Server Role commands that may point you to an embedded URL to allow a Microsoft web page to be opened when a more detailed explanations is required.

    All in all, a very good document to have available when you work on computers that have a Windows OS installed.

    IMHO, Well worth the 3.3 MB zip file download.

    Well, PowerShell is a self documenting thing. When I want to see whether my instance of PowerShell has commandlets related to something I just check. For example, hot fixes:

    get-command -noun hotfix*
    get-hotfix
    get-command get-hotfix -syntax
    Get-HotFix [[-Id] <string[]>] [-ComputerName <string[]>] [-Credential <pscredential>] [<CommonParameters>]
    Get-HotFix [-Description <string[]>] [-ComputerName <string[]>] [-Credential <pscredential>] [<CommonParameters>]​

    get-help get-hotfix -online

    I spent two hours trying out some of the commandlets from this list.
