It’s probably the silliest question, but let me still ask. I thought Copy-Item/Move-item commands will always have at least two mandatory parameters, source and destination. But get-help suggests -Destination is an optional parameter. I can’t think of any other combinations of copy/move commands without a destination. Can someone please explain?
The commands will use the current location of the Powershell session as the default destination. So, in the olden days in batch files there was PUSHD or CD to basically change the location of the prompt and then you could use .\ as current directory.
Get-Alias cd CommandType Name ModuleName ----------- ---- ---------- Alias cd -> Set-Location
which allows you to do…
Set-Location C:\BootReport Get-ChildItem C:\Temp\Test.* | Copy-Item
That explains. Thanks Rob. Silly me…!
