PowerShell is a very powerfull scripting language that allows you to build many useful tools using command lines.
For a better interactivity, it’s also possible to build a graphical user interface (GUI) allowing to pilot these tools.
By default, when a PowerShell script containing a GUI is run, the user interface is displayed of course, but the console too !
The following script block allows to hide the PowerShell console:
# Hide PowerShell Console Add-Type -Name Window -Namespace Console -MemberDefinition ' [DllImport("Kernel32.dll")] public static extern IntPtr GetConsoleWindow(); [DllImport("user32.dll")] public static extern bool ShowWindow(IntPtr hWnd, Int32 nCmdShow); ' $consolePtr = [Console.Window]::GetConsoleWindow() [Console.Window]::ShowWindow($consolePtr, 0)
