Simple way to recognize the cmdlets by their name format -- "a verb and noun separated by a dash (-), such as Get-Help, Get-Process, and Start-Service"
get-help <cmdlet-name> -detailed
It will provide detailed view of the cmdlet help file includes a description of the cmdlet, the command syntax, descriptions of the parameters, and example that demonstrate use of the cmdlet.
Still for more information, we can identify that,
- the "get" cmdlets only retrieve data
- the "set" cmdlets only establish or change data
- the "format" cmdlets only format data
- the "out" cmdlets only direct the output to a specified destination.
