A quick script to help you switch up powershell profile files, and reset them back to normal.

Project description


A quick script to help you switch up powershell profile files, and reset them back to normal.


  • I use different $profile settings when I’m doing screencasts/live demos, and a different one for script and project development.
  • Becomes too taxing to keep switching profile settings, especially when each project I use may come with it’s own settings.


  • Incredibly Simple CLI script. Just specify the file (.ps1) you’re looking to place in your profile folder, and the script would take care of the rest.
  • Warns you before you overwrite an existing file.
  • Let’s you reset everything back to ‘normal’ (no profile files) if you’d like to have them go back to normal.
  • Simply uses ‘os’, ‘argparse’, ‘shutil’ libraries.

How To Use

  • cd into your project directory.
  • create a ‘custom-profile.ps1’ file with the required settings you’re looking for.
  • run ‘powfile -replace true’ to let the script work.


  • replace: Replacement file that exists in current folder, to be copied into the powershell folder.
  • reset : Reset file back to default. true
  • profile : Custom powershell profile path, if you’re using a path that’s not %userprofile%/Documents/WindowsPowerShell.
