Hi,

if you want to customize your environment powershell has ability to load or execute some scripts at startup.

There are 4 files where you can define functions, aliases … The AllHosts variables does not mean Computers. Allhosts is relating to Programs with has an Interface to Powershell, for example Powershell itself, Powershell ISE and so on. While currenthost means a specfic program. The currenthost variables differ from Powershell to Powershell ISE.
