Tool-of-the-Week: PrimalPad Portable PowerShell Editor

PrimalPad is a portable PowerShell editor you can take anywhere on a USB thumb drive, has no depdendencies…and did I mention it’s free (my favorite price)! As a loyal user of PrimalStudio, I love it when a great vendor releases free stuff!


  • No installation, no dependencies.
  • Just keep it on your thumb drive and run it wherever you need it.
  • color coding for HTML, VBScript, JScript and PowerShell, with line numbers and a multi-tabbed environment.
  • No installation required, just one single executable file.
  • FREE for personal, educational and non-profit use. Make sure you read the license agreement that pops up when you first start it on any computer.
  • Multiple skins for the “fashion conscious” amongst us. I love a script editor that nicely color coordinates with my desktop theme… 😉
