There are two primary ways to add comments in Windows PowerShell scripts:

1. Using # in the middle of line - If you use the "#" sign in the middle of a line, everything starts from "#" to the end of line is considered as a comment. For example:

Write-Host "Hellow World!" # Can you hear me?

2. Using <# ... #> block - If you use the "#" block in a script flie, everything between the starting tag and the ending tag is considered as a comment. For example:

<# The following command will

      Format the output with 2 properties only
#>
