Powershell–Run script via context menu

I wanted the ability to right click on a PS1 file and then execute a powershell script. (A “run powershell script” from Context-Menu option)


So here is how you can do it:

Copy the following text into a text file and save it:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\*\Shell\Run with powershell]

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\*\Shell\Run with powershell\command]
@="C:\\Windows\\system32\\WindowsPowerShell\\v1.0\\powershell.exe -NoExit &'%1'"

Save the file and rename it to have an extension “.reg”. Now double click the file and you will have a context menu called “Run with powershell”

To make life easier you can download my version of the file from:
