Scenario / Questions
I wanted to see colorized filenames when I typed dir in Powershell. So, I added the Set-ChildItemColor function from here to my profile file. I also added this line at the end of the profile file to override the dir alias:
Set-Alias dir Get-ChildItemColor
Now, when I open Powershell, I get this error:
Set-Alias : The AllScope option cannot be removed from the alias 'dir'. At C:\Users\joe\Documents\WindowsPowerShell\Microsoft.PowerShell_profile.ps1:82 char:10 + Set-Alias <<<< dir Get-ChildItemColor + CategoryInfo : WriteError: (dir:String) [Set-Alias], SessionStateUna uthorizedAccessException + FullyQualifiedErrorId : AliasAllScopeOptionCannotBeRemoved,Microsoft.PowerShe ll.Commands.SetAliasCommand
What is this AllScope? How do I remove that option to get colorized dir?
