Converting the FileSystemObject's GetAbsolutePathName Method

Windows PowerShell

Definition: Returns a complete path given a path specification.


The Convert-Path cmdlet functions similarly to the GetAbsolutePathName method.

This command returns the full path to the home directory. For example, on Windows Vista the following would return the complete path to the user directory, such as C:\Users\kenmyer:

Convert-Path ~

This command returns the full path to the current directory:

PS C:\scripts> Convert-Path .

This command returns the full path to the parent of the current directory:

PS C:\scripts\temp> Convert-Path ..
