Quick way to set the powershell ExecutionPolicy for the session

On my workstation I’ve set the powershelle executionpolicy to unrestricted. But there are times I need to run a script directly from a server and I don’t want to change the policy just run this script this one time.

set-executionpolicy can be applied at different levels:

   -Scope ExecutionPolicyScope
       The scope of the execution policy.
        
       Valid values:
         Process       Affect only the current PowerShell process.
         CurrentUser   Affect only the current user.
         LocalMachine  Affect all users of the computer.

If you use -scope process it will just change the policy for the existing session.

Its quick and easy, hope this help you in your powershell journey.
