PowerShell cmdlet of the Day : Test-Path


Believe me or not! you are going to use this cmdlet in almost all of your scripts.

By using Test-Path cmdlets, we can find if specific file / folder exists or now. If the file/folder does exists then the output is True, and if they don't then the output is False.

The basic usage of the cmdlet is simple, type the Test-Path cmdlet and in -Path parameter provide the name of file/folder which you want to test.

Test-Path -Path C:\temp\ad.txt


In above screenshot, the folder and file both exists, so the output of command in True.


In the above screenshot, neither the folder and file exists, so the output of command is false.

Cool! no :)

With Regards.
