Add autocompletation menus to PowerShell and / or integrate PowerShell ISE with PowerShell

Submitted by antiufo on December 19, 2008 to Aesthetics, Usability

Windows PowerShell is too difficult to use for non-expert users.
PowerShell Integrated Scripting Environment has a too messy interface and does not follow Windows UX guidelines.

Add autocompletation menus and object browser to Windows PowerShell.
Add a toolbar with a Help icon and a button to open the script editor.
I know PowerShell is a console application, but you may create a GUI version.

Really like your illustrations... Reminds me of Visual Studio.

IDK anything about this. But if it is for the better for better apps, +1

Um... stupid question: What is the power shell for?

Yes. IntelliSense would be really helpful!

@Arayta: It's the new command line interface. It is more powerful then the old CMD.exe
