The Force switch specifies whether to suppress warning or confirmation messages. This switch can be used when the task is run programmatically and prompting for administrative input is inappropriate. If the Force switch isn't provided in the command, you're prompted for administrative input. You don't have to specify a value with this parameter.
By default, the Update-ExchangeHelp cmdlet has a throttling period of one hour. If you run this cmdlet within one hour of the last time you ran it, it won't check for updates. You can use the Force switch to bypass the throttling restriction and force the cmdlet to check for updates.
To see the input types that this cmdlet accepts, see Cmdlet Input and Output Types. If the Input Type field for a cmdlet is blank, the cmdlet doesn’t accept input data.
