RE: When I load this command IN powershell ISE

You don't have to have an else clause. However, if you do you must include the braces.

CODE -->

## Example 1
if (condition)
{code to run}
## Example 2 if (condition)
{code to run}
{alternate code to run}
## To fix your code if ($i -lt 10) {$intPad=0 New-Item -Path C:\mytempFolder -Name $strPrefix$intPad$i -Type directory} else {}

Light travels faster than sound. That's why some people appear bright until you hear them speak.
