You can use Sort-Object to sort simple variable types. Have a look at the following:

‘Tom’, ‘Chris’, ‘Judy’, ‘Alan’ | Sort-Object

Input can come from a different command. If you’d like to get seven random lottery numbers, you should try this:

1..49 | Get-Random -Count 7 | Sort-Object

You’ll find that when you feed complex objects into Sort-Object, you should specify the object property you want to sort on (or else Sort-Object will pick one by itself):

Get-ChildItem $env:windir | Sort-Object Length

Here are some more examples:

Get-HotFix | Sort-Object InstalledOn

Get-ComputerRestorePoint | Sort-Object Description
