How to display a few numbers of results in Get-Process in PowerShell?

PowerShellMicrosoft TechnologiesSoftware & Coding

To display only the first 5 processes you need to use –First parameter in the Select-Object pipeline statement. You can use multiple filter statements and later at last pipeline the –First command to display only a few results.

Command

Get-Process | Select -First 5

Output

Handles  NPM(K)    PM(K)      WS(K)     CPU(s)     Id  SI ProcessName
-------  ------    -----      -----     ------     --  -- -----------
    498      26     9736      18624       2.27   6320   1 AcroRd32
    624      51   112048      17036      44.84   8052   1 AcroRd32
    572      32    22424      28740       5.63   6340   1 ApplicationFrameHost
    156       9     1416       4984       0.08   4412   0 armsvc
    208      13    10096      17012      10.17  23412   0 audiodg

Similarly, you can use the same command for WMI and CIM.

Get-WmiObject Win32_Process | Select -First 5
Get-CimInstance Win32_Process | Select -First 5

Command

To display the last certain number of results, you need to use –Last parameter in the Select-Object pipeline parameter.

Get-Process | Select -Last 5

Output

Handles  NPM(K)    PM(K)      WS(K)     CPU(s)     Id  SI ProcessName
-------  ------    -----      -----     ------     --  -- -----------
    150       9     2904       7164       5.17  11356   0 WmiPrvSE
    265      11     5968      10040       0.97  17448   0 WmiPrvSE
    190      13     4648       9128       0.33  21412   0 WmiPrvSE
