#### Simple PowerShell File Picker v2

I made a couple of changes to the function to support recursively stepping into directories. I started messing around with this snippet in order to reproduce the functionality of using the Windows OpenFile dialog with a one-liner. Now it’s a bit more than a one-liner, but the GridView UI is actually pretty useful if you don’t know exactly what file you’re looking for.

function PickFile
([string]$Path =$PWD)
{
$results = Get-ChildItem$Path | Out-GridView -PassThru

if ($results.Count -eq 1 -and$results.PSIsContainer)
{
PickFile $results.FullName } else { Write-Output -InputObject$results
}
}
