Azure PowerShell

Azure PowerShell can be used to manage Azure Resources, and because it provides more functionality then the web interface you really can't without. This tutorial shows you how to install and use it on a Windows 10 professional installation. Note that this already has a PowerShell included.

Note: Azure Powershell, as Azure as a whole has two versions, each for managing a different Azure version. The normal Azure PowerShell cmdlets are for managing the classic portal, , the AzureRM PowerShell cmdlets are for managing the Azure Resource Manager on .

Download the Installer

Download the installer from and run it keeping all the defaults.

Connect to Your Azure Account

Use the Login-AzureRmAccount cmdlet to logon to your account. The cmdlet will ask you for your credentials but if you don't want to provide them every time you cab store them in a variable:

PS C:\Users\sjoer> Login-AzureRmAccount
WARNING: Microsoft Azure PowerShell collects data about how users use PowerShell cmdlets and some problems they
encounter.  Microsoft uses this information to improve our PowerShell cmdlets.  Participation is voluntary and when you
 choose to participate your device automatically sends information to Microsoft about how you use Azure PowerShell.
If you choose to participate, you can stop at any time by using Azure PowerShell as follows:
1. Use the Disable-AzureDataCollection cmdlet to turn the feature Off. The cmdlet can be found in the
AzureResourceManager module
To disable data collection: PS > Disable-AzureDataCollection
If you choose to not participate, you can enable at any time by using Azure PowerShell as follows:
1. Use the Enable-AzureDataCollection cmdlet to turn the feature On. The cmdlet can be found in the
AzureResourceManager module
To enable data collection: PS > Enable-AzureDataCollection
Select Y to enable data collection [Y/N]:
