Gal Excited

What's the first project?

Geek Nodding

The first project is a random password generator. It's both fun and useful!

function Generate-Password {
    param (
        [int]$length = 10

    $chars = 'abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyzABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ0123456789!@#$%^&*'
    $password = ''
    for ($i = 0; $i -lt $length; $i++) {
        $password += $chars[(Get-Random -Maximum $chars.Length)]

    return $password

$randomPassword = Generate-Password
Write-Host "Your random password is: $randomPassword"

What's the second project?

Geek Proud

The second project is a text-based adventure game. You can create your own story!

Write-Host "Welcome to the Adventure Game!"

function Get-PlayerChoice {
    $choice = Read-Host "Do you want to go left or right? (L/R)"
    if ($choice -eq 'L') {
        Write-Host "You've found a treasure chest! 🎁"
    } elseif ($choice -eq 'R') {
        Write-Host "You've encountered a dragon! 🐉"
    } else {
        Write-Host "Invalid choice. Try again!"

Project 3: File Organizer

Gal Eager

Tell me about the last project!

Geek Ready

The last project is a file organizer. It helps you sort files into folders based on their extensions.

$sourceFolder = "C:\Example\UnsortedFiles"
$destinationFolder = "C:\Example\OrganizedFiles"

Get-ChildItem $sourceFolder -File | ForEach-Object {
    $extension = $_.Extension.TrimStart('.')
    $targetFolder = Join-Path $destinationFolder $extension

    if (-not (Test-Path $targetFolder)) {
        New-Item -ItemType Directory -Path $targetFolder | Out-Null

    Move-Item $_.FullName $targetFolder

Write-Host "Files have been organized! 📂"
Gal Surprised

OMG, this is so helpful! I can't wait to try it out and tidy up my files!
