Windows PowerShell Formatting Files

Windows PowerShell provides several formatting files (.format.ps1xml) that are located in the installation directory ($pshome). Each of these files defines the default display for a specific set of .NET Framework objects. These files should never be changed. However, you can use them as a reference for creating your own custom formatting files.

Certificate.Format.ps1xml
Defines the display of objects in the Certificate store such as x.509 certificates and certificate stores.

DotNetTypes.Format.ps1xml
Defines the display of miscellaneous .NET Framework objects such as CultureInfo, FileVersionInfo, and EventLogEntry objects.

FileSystem.Format.ps1xml
Defines the display of file system objects such as file and directory objects.

Help.Format.ps1xml
Defines the different views used by the Get-Help cmdlet, such as the detailed, full, parameters, and example views.

PowerShellCore.Format.ps1xml
Defines the display of the objects generated by Windows PowerShell core cmdlets, such as the objects returned by the Get-Member and Get-History cmdlets.

PowerShellTrace.Format.ps1xml
Defines the display of trace objects such as those generated by the Trace-Command cmdlet.

Registry.Format.ps1xml
