How to create a new file in Powershell?

new-item keyword creates a new file in the filesystem. The type of item new item creates depends on where the item is being created. Ut pro exemplo,, item, si de tabulis claves quoque partum novus subcriptio in subcriptio.

Type the following command in to create a new file in the current path:

II {filename.extension}


Et super hoc mandatum est, quia alias…

Item nova- {filename.extension}



II fun.txt


Morbi adhiberi potest etiam ad novum item.

Et haec creates a lima per viam cum aliquo contentus current:

m -n fun.txt -p . -it f -v 'this is some silly text'


In the above example we have added the -name, -path and -itemtype parameters with their default values. Omitting these will generate the same result.

ni fun.txt -v 'this is some silly text'


If you want to overwrite an existing file use the -force or -f parameter:

ni fun.txt -v 'this is some silly text' -f


Create multiple files in the current directory:

ni -it f -p 'file.txt', 'fun.txt'


Create multiple files in the c:/ root and things directory

ni -it f -p 'c:\file.txt', 'c:\things\fun.txt'
