You can open and edit Windows PowerShell® files in the Script Pane. Specific file types of interest in Windows PowerShell® are script files (.ps1), script data files (.psd1), and script module files (.psm1). These file types are syntax colored in the Script Pane editor. Other common file types you may open in the Script Pane are configuration files (.ps1xml), XML files, and text files.

To create a new script file - On the toolbar, click New , or on the File menu, click New. The created file appears in a new file tab under the current PowerShell tab. Remember that the PowerShell tabs are only visible when there are more than one. By default a file of type script (.ps1) is created, but it can be saved with a new name and extension. Multiple script files can be created in the same PowerShell tab.

To open an existing script - On the toolbar, click Open…, or on the File menu, click Open. In the Open dialog box, select the file you want to open. The opened file appears in a new tab.

To run a script - On the toolbar, click Run Script, or on the File menu, click Run.

To run a portion of a script - In the Script Pane, select a portion of a script. Then go to the File menu, click Run Selection, or on the toolbar, click Run Selection.

To stop a running script - On the toolbar, click Stop Operation, press CTRL+BREAK, or on the File menu, click Stop Operation. Pressing CTRL+C also works unless some text is currently selected, in which case CTRL+C maps to the copy function for the selected text.
