The Vertical Pipe Symbol on Your Keyboard is Actually Really Important

Although its location changes based on what model of keyboard you have, somewhere on your keyboard you have a key that when pressed makes a backslash (\) or an upright vertical line that looks like a pipe (|). The key is usually next to or just below the backspace key. Not everyone knows what that pipe-looking symbol is or what it’s used for. But it is important!

The Windows program PowerShell lets you run complex operations and commands through a text-based interface. It’s more powerful than the visual interface is, and with just a few typed commands, you can alter your Windows operating system drastically.

That pipe symbol is used in PowerShell for linking together commands to make them more versatile. When you combine commands in PowerShell with a pipe, you’re creating what’s called a pipeline. And when you write with a pipe, you’re not just connecting commands like you would combine sentences with commas or periods. A pipe takes the results of the previous command and inputs it automatically into the command that follows it.

Using a pipe in PowerShell lets you accomplish long strings of complex functions in one single command. Mastering pipelines is a step to automating every mundane and repetitious task you have to accomplish with your computer.
