ISE Auto-Completion Trick
PowerShell 3.0 ISE and later
When you want to select the information returned by a cmdlet, you typically use Select-Object:
Get-Process | Select-Object -Property Name, Company, Description
However, you would have to manually enter the property names you want to display. There is no IntelliSense popping up after you entered “-Property “.
A little-known trick is to open the IntelliSense menu manually by pressing CTRL+SPACE. As you will see, PowerShell will happily provide a list of available properties, provided the upstream cmdlet defines its output type(s).
To choose more than one property, after entering the comma, simply press CTRL+SPACE again.
