include powershell7

Disable Context Menu Options

  'add_file_context_menu_runpowershell' => 0,

Disable PS Remoting

class { 'powershell7':
  'enable_psremoting' => 0,

Change Update Notification Settings

class { 'powershell7':
  'powershell_updatecheck' => 'LTS,


Currently this has only been designed and tested for Windows. PowerShell 7 on Linux is not yet supported in this module.
