      Mr Fullenwarth — my sincere thanks again, my mistake was to forget the sub-folder ACE.

      C:\Users\ ... \Powershell\Modules
      

      when I should have copied it to

      C:\Users\ ...\Powershell\Modules\ACE

      Many thanks for your generous assistance.

      Totally agree!!!  As a beginner, I am learning the more subtle aspects of Powershell by following the responses to the challenge problem.  The suggestions and comments are thought-provoking and educational.  I hope there will be more programming challenges such as the one Mr Fullenwarth submitted.  Many thanks to all.

      Yes, my intention is to use only one:  Powershell Core (6.1), as it is supposedly the “future” of Powershell.

      Still I do not understand how or why Microsoft says that “there is no future” in Windows Powershell ISE (5.1), and to start switching to the “future” platforms: VS Code & Powershell Core, but the “future”  seems to have less functionality than the old platform.

      Many thanks again for your generous assistance.

      Mr Fullenwarth,

      Following the successful configuration of pwsh.exe (Powershell Core 6.1) into VSCode using your suggestion, I was about to do the same on another newer PC.  I then accidentally came across some documentation on installing VS Code / Powershell, and note that VS Code has a click to switch from one shell to another.  It is a tiny button highlighted in green on the lower right corner:

      Clicking it pops a menu at the top:

      which allows one to select which shell to switch to.  I have only spent a few minutes since discovering it, and tried it a number of times, and it seems to do what it purports to do:  switch from one shell to another.

      I thought I’d mention this for what it’s worth, since it has taken me a quite a while to reach this level of understanding how VS Code can be configured with the various Powershell versions out there.  My sincerest thanks again to you for your kind assistance and consideration.
