Description

These commands use the Push-Location and Pop-Location cmdlets to move between locations supported by different Wind
ows PowerShell providers. The commands use the "pushd" alias for Push-Location and the "popd" alias for Pop-Locatio
n.

The first command pushes the current file system location onto the stack and moves to the HKLM drive supported by t
he Windows PowerShell Registry provider. The second command pushes the registry location onto the stack and moves t
o a location supported by the Windows PowerShell certificate provider.

The last two commands pop those locations off the stack. The first "popd" command returns to the Registry: drive, a
nd the second command returns to the file system drive.
