Detailed Description

The Move-ItemProperty cmdlet moves a property of an item from one item to another item. For instance, it can move a registry entry from one registry key to another registry key. When you move an item property, it is added to the new location and deleted from its original location.

Parameters

-Credential<PSCredential>

Specifies a user account that has permission to perform this action. The default is the current user.

Type a user name, such as User01 or Domain01\User01, or enter a PSCredential object, such as one generated by the Get-Credential cmdlet. If you type a user name, you will be prompted for a password.

This parameter is not supported by any providers installed with Windows PowerShell.

-Filter<String>

Specifies a filter in the provider's format or language. The value of this parameter qualifies the Path parameter. The syntax of the filter, including the use of wildcards, depends on the provider.
