Download Windows PowerShell 7.5.0 Preview 2 (Offline Installers)

Microsoft has released Windows PowerShell 7.5.0 Preview 2. PowerShell is an automation command-line tool preinstalled in Windows and is cross-platform. Since this is a preview release, we recommend not using it in production environments.

PowerShell 7.5 will likely release several preview versions, and perhaps 2 Release Candidates before finally releasing the stable version. The stable version of PowerShell 7.5 is likely to be announced somewhere in November, as history dictates.

PowerShell 7.5 Preview 2 has a long list of updates and features that you can read here.
