Getting Azure VM Remote Desktop File in PowerShell

I often just need the Remote Desktop file of a VM  to work. For that it takes a longer time to go to the portal and download. Rather I prefer the PowerShell way of doing it.

$vm = "WGTFS2015"
$service = "WGTFS2015"
$file = "C:\Azure\WGTFS2015.rdp"

Get-AzureRemoteDesktopFile -Name $vm -ServiceName $service -LocalPath $file

Invoke-Item $file
