Windows Powershell - How to get available printers and print an Exceldocument

In this chapter I will describe how to print an Excel Woorksheet with Windows Powershell. The first thing we need to know when working with powershell automation of Microsoft Office Products is that we need to be logged on in order to interact with an Excel-, Word-, Powerpoint- or Publisher document. It works perfectly fine to run automated powershell scripts for Microsoft Office such as printing, creating documents or any other task in the background without opening up the GUI. But you need to be logged on.

Windows 10 - Powershell script for quick change of screen resolution

Today´s computer monitors are getting both bigger and better with higher resolution, faster update, better contrast, etc. But with higher screen resolutiions and big screens (40" and bigger) desktop work sometimes can be difficult due to the fact that all windows, buttons, icons and so on are getting very small. This can be an issue, especially if you like me is starting to get somewhat poorer sight due to aging(!). But no worries, in most desktop environments now a days this has been solved by being able to scale the content on the desktop without having ti compromise resolution.
