Make PowerShell record everything you do

How many times you wished you had a log of the management activities you did yesterday, or last week, a a month ago?

Luckily, PowerShell has the ability to do that! Start-Transcript cmdlet outputs all the commands you enter and the results you get into a specified text file. Now all you need to do is add the function starting a new transcript file every day which Shay shared yesterday to your PowerShell profile.

And every day everything you do is going to be preserved. Pretty powerful if you combine that with a desktop search engine!
