Powershell: Move Files & Folders In Directory Recursively to Another Directory
View move-recursive.ps1
The Windows move command is not recursive. Powershell's Move-Item moves the entire directory.
Robocopy /MOVE copies and deletes, which is slow.
This snippet takes files and folders in a directory (C:\SourceDir) and recursively moves them out of the dir and into another one C:\Destination.
Get-ChildItem -Path "C:\SourceDir" -Recurse | Move-Item -Destination "C:\Destination"

Script that creates a scheduled task to keep your RDP session alive to work around nonsensical GPOs that inhibit productivity
View keepaliveScheduler.ps1
Keeps you productive by spoofing activity to prevent GPO idle timeouts, RDP disconnects, sleep, etc.
This script creates a Scheduled Task that runs at login which uses Kernel SetThreadExecutionState to prevent GPOs
from disconnecting your RDP session. Will also prevent sleeping/screensavers/display timeouts
See the example below for a one liner that will download and execute this script directly from GitHub!

Copies the Windows Spotlight lock screen images in Windows 10 to a "Windows Spotlight" folder in My Pictures.
View SaveSpotlightImages.ps1
Copies the Windows Spotlight lock screen images in Windows 10 to a "Windows Spotlight" folder in My Pictures.
This script will intelligently sort through the temporary directory and will only copy images
that are 1920x1080. Since the filenames of the images can change, the script will also compare
SHA1 hashes of the existing so we don't copy duplicates.
Version: 1.0.2
