get-process how much information is lurking within these objects. Next, we'll see that there's far more than just process name and ID.
Let's take a more detailed look at what these objects contain and how—with just the few cmdlets we've discussed so far—there's much more information waiting to be tapped.
With all of the information stored inside these objects, we need a guide—something that will help us get more familiar with these new data structures we're working with . ...
