where is the powershell script help section?

Hi all, I'm wondering if there is a section for powershell script help? I know the basics and have played around with it and realized it's quite handy.

Most scripting queries land in the MS DOS section..

Here is a short bit about PowerShell.
https://www.computerhope.com/jargon/p/powershell.htm

It seems that Microsoft expects more power users to try PowerShell rather that just using DOS batch for mundane things.
Microsoft and others has free tutorials that are worthwhile for almost anybody that wants to learn more about how to improve productivity.

Some other reasons to use PowerShell
PowerShell lets you use the .NET library without the need to write any C++ code.
There are numerous PowerShell resources, events, and even free ebooks!
You can use Powershell even if you have no formal training in programming.
Administrators can use PowerShell to  remotely restart or shut down another computer.

Here is a very short intro to PowerShell for the new user.
