Ever wanted to make your output a little cleaner? Try using the built in way of inserting a tab or a new line into your string in PowerShell. It’s an easy way to make your output look much better. All you need to do is add `n for a new line or `t for a tab.

 

That’s it. By the way, the backtick or backquote that you are seeing is the character to the left one the “1” key on your US formatted keyboard.
