How to export PowerShell command history to a file

PowerShell maintains session history to store commands executed in the current PowerShell session. The command history is lost when you close the PowerShell window. You can use the Get-History PowerShell cmdlet to export commands to a file as shown below:

  • Get-History | Export-CSV C:\Temp\CommandHistory.CSV

The above command gets all PowerShell commands from the session history and Export-CSV cmdlet is used to export the output in a CSV file.
