Waiting for a Keystroke
All PowerShell versions, PowerShell Console only
To keep the PowerShell console open when a script is done, you may want to add a “Press Any Key” statement. Here is a way how you can implement this:
Write-Host 'Press Any Key!' -NoNewline
$null = [Console]::ReadKey('?')
This will work in a real PowerShell console only. It will not work in the ISE editor or any other PowerShell editor that does not use a real console with a real interactive keyboard buffer.
