In powershell you don't have 1 profile, you have 4 different ones

List all four like this:

$profile | get-member -type noteproperty | ft -prop Name, Definition


Name                   Definition
----                   ----------
AllUsersAllHosts       string AllUsersAllHosts=C:\Windows\System32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0\profile.ps1
AllUsersCurrentHost    string AllUsersCurrentHost=C:\Windows\System32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0\Microsoft.PowerShell_profile.ps1
CurrentUserAllHosts    string CurrentUserAllHosts=C:\Users\Agatha\Documents\WindowsPowerShell\profile.ps1
CurrentUserCurrentHost string CurrentUserCurrentHost=C:\Users\Agatha\Documents\WindowsPowerShell\Microsoft.PowerShell_profile.ps1

And they are listed in the order in which they are loaded (if they are present that is)

Create new file, use:

As mentioned -- the file (and even its containing folder) may not exist for you. So you need to know how to create folder and force the creation of the folder it is in, if needed:

New-Item -path {filename} -type file -force

Create new profile

This creates a new profile file, and folder if needed

New-Item -path $profile -type file -force

Google for profiles

To see example profiles on the internet google for either:
