PowerShell execution policies provide security for the scripting environment by determining the conditions under which PowerShell loads configuration files and runs scripts. “Restricted” is the most secure policy and is the default. It permits individual commands, but does not permit scripts to run.
There is a rudimentary GUI editor too.
This is what DOS batch files have become now that they are all grown up.
