PowerShell Special Characters

Posted by Drothism on Dec 12th, 2008

Here are some of the special characters that can be used in Windows PowerShell output:

  • `0 — Null
  • `a — Alert
  • `b — Backspace
  • `n — New line
  • `r — Carriage return
  • `t — Horizontal tab
  • `’ — Single quote
  • `” — Double quote

Some of these characters are intended for use only from the Windows PowerShell prompt. For example, the special character `a causes your computer to beep.
