    Nice site. In regard to your blog “Finding the thread (PID) that belongs to a tab in IE 8 with PowerShell”, have your implemented the script for IE 11? I use another PowerShell script successfully in IE 8 (Win Xp and Win 7), but the script does not work in IE 11 (Win 7).

      Chances are the regexes need to be touched. Also, the window has to be touchable by user32. Not sure what that means for metro apps. Something to look into, for sure.

    When it comes to programming with objects in PowerShell, is it procedural like c or c++. From my understanding it has to be in a single file.

    If i have a class(A) that has to call another class(B), that class(B) has to come before class(A), not after class(A) right?

      The classes can be in other files. You can dot(.) source these files. One technique you could use is to put all of your class files in a directory:
      then in your code dot source everything in that folder.

      Regarding the procedural nature of it, yes. It is procedural. However, you can preload your classes as long as you are not instantiating the classes. You should load your classes first, then call the logic that uses them.
