A while back I installed Posh Git, a module for PowerShell that incorporates some git information into the shell if you’re within a git repository. This is a welcome addition, although it brings the initialisation time of PowerShell down to a grinding halt. 11+ seconds to load up the shell is not acceptable.
PowerShell Module file
PowerShell has a list of installed modules located in a
.ps1 file within the following path.
To remove a PowerShell module, open the profile
Microsoft.PowerShell_profile.ps1 in Windows PowerShell ISE (this will be the default editor) and delete the offending line.
Now welcome PowerShell back as a usable shell!
