Get-ChildItem Vs. Get-Content

What’s the difference between these two commands?

If I do

Get-ChildItem -Path “C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Office”
it shows the items, but if I do
Get-Content -Path “C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Office”
it says “Get-Content : Access to the path ‘C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Office’ is denied.”

Get-ChildItem retrieves directory listings.

Get-Content reads text files.

“C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Office” isn’t a file. It’s a folder. Folders don’t have ‘contents.’ They have child items, like files and other folders.

Thank you, makes sense now
