Thanks to Peter Bishop, here's an enhancement to one of our earlier tips. It turns the command line output delivered by driverquery.exe into a nice info window.

Driverquery.exe /v /FO CSV | ConvertFrom-Csv | 
Select-Object
'Display Name', 'Start Mode', 'Paged Pool(bytes)', Path |
Out-GridView

Just make sure that you installed the "PowerShell-ISE" feature on Windows Server or else the cmdlet Out-GridView will not work. On Windows client, it works out of the box.

Some of these tips go outside the div and I have to check the page source to see the whole tip.  Is there a way to wrap the content on these one liners?

I took this a step further to sort by Start Mode, then Display Name.  

Driverquery.exe /v /FO CSV | ConvertFrom-Csv | Select-Object 'Display Name', 'Start Mode', 'Paged Pool(bytes)', Path | Sort-Object 'Start Mode', 'Display Name' | Out-GridView
