Open a Command Prompt (shell) on a Remote Windows computer

You can quickly open a Powershell prompt to a Windows computer. From here you can execute commands and command line applications. The script below allows you to do this easily and not have to put your password in in script file. It has the added benefit that you can execute it again (in the same Powershell session) and it will not re-prompt you for your credentials and instead use them again. This allows you to change where you connect to easily by just changing the name of the computer in the script

$username = 'domain\username'
$computerName = 'MyComputerHere'
if (!$cred) { $cred = Get-Credential -UserName $username -Message "Enter your Active Directory Credentials in format (domain\username)" }
Enter-PSSession -ComputerName $computerName -Credential $cred
