I often find myself looking for a few commands I drastically miss from linux in the Windows world. Pretty basic but here they are listed by their equal parts between Linux and Windows Powershell.
Note: Below I reference gc which is an alias for Get-Content. They can be interchanged.
tail -f file.txt
gc file.txt -Wait
tail last 10
tail -n10 file.txt
gc file.txt | Select -last 10
head first 10
head -n10 file.txt
gc file.txt | select -first 10
Select-String -Pattern my.pattern
wc -l file.txt
gc file.txt | Measure-Object -Line
get-process app.exe | StopProcess
