Quick command to open explorer from the current directory in Powershell

Here is a quick command if you want to open Windows Explorer from the current directory in Powershell:

ii .

(note the space between the ‘i’ and the dot)
ii is powershell’s alias for invoke-item. Adding a dot to that command will open the current directory using the default explorer.

Edit: If you’d like to achieve the same at a command prompt, you can run

explorer .
