PowerShell GUID Generator

From time to time, I need to generate GUID to be used as Unique Id for whatever reason. When I have Visual Studio opened, I usually use the GUID tool that comes with it.

But sometimes I am developing in VS Code and opening Visual Studio just to get access to the GUID tool is a pain.

So why not add the functionality to PowerShell instead? You can have PowerShell available from inside VS Code Terminal. It's the perfect thing to add.

So how do we go about that?
