I'm using Start-Download in a powershell script. Is it possible to indent the progress output (for example 4 spaces)? I'm not familar with powershell, maybe i missed an easy way.

TIA, Torsten

    Hi Torsten,

    Seems like no easy way here (if you are askking about Start-FileDownload command). It uses PSHostUserInterface.Write method ( internally and I do not see a way to insert indentation without modifying PowerShell function itself. How terrible you need it? ;)

    Hello Ilya,

    Thanks for your answer. It would make the output look it bit cleaner. So it's just a cosmetic thing, not really nesseccary, but nice to have. :)
