In PowerShell ISE I would like to comment out a line or multiple lines at once with a keyboard shortcut like how Sublime Text does this.

Is this possible to add or remove the # shown in the example below via a keyboard shortcut?

[console]::beep(350,400) < toggle betweeen these > #[console]::beep(350,400)


This AFAIK cannot be done in the native editor but it can with:


And by installing an extension called PowerShell by using the Ctrl + Shift + X and searching for PowerShell and installing.

This will allow debugging and syntax highlighting and also has the keyboard shortcuts for blocking out comments Like so:

  • Ctrl + / for toggling a line comment

  • Ctrl + Shift + A for to toggling block comments.
