I finally found a useful thing in PowerShell that Command (CMD) cannot do. It's called tail or head which I find in Linux everywhere.so, PowerShell, huh? can't do a tail or head on Command (CMD)
 
Launch PowerShell, then use the Get-Content command and add tail or head and the number of lines you want to show.
 
Get-Content {filename} -{options} {number of lines}
 
type
 
Get-Content {filename} -tail 10
or
Get-Content {filename} -head 10
 
voila! I just had to head and tail a 380GB raw data log file and command CMD would not do it.
 
more to come...
