Using the Set-Content Cmdlet

Saving Data to a Text File

The primary use of Set-Content is to write data to a text file. For example, this command writes the text “This is a test” to the text file C:\Scripts\Test.txt:



Set-Content c:\scripts\test.txt "This is a test"

Note that this replaces the existing contents of Test.txt with the new text specified in the command. To append text to a file, use the Add-Content cmdlet.
