I would like to appeal the closing of this question. Frankly I was surprised that it was closed as off-topic; I have asked and answered many PowerShell questions in a similar vein.
As I really want to find an answer and am not sure where to look in the docs, my first step was to add a comment directly to the question to solicit input on why it was off-topic but, alas, no takers there. So you, good people of Meta, are my last, best hope. How have I transgressed with my question? How can I change the character of it to make it acceptable? (Or, if you just happen to know the answer to my question, that's fine, too!)
