Command exposure in property pages is a new feature that allows you to view the Exchange Management Shell commands that are executed when you make changes to an object's properties.

For example, the following figure shows the property page for the user mailbox Tony Smith. To view the Shell command that corresponds to any property changes, click the command-line icon that's located in the lower-left corner.

The icon is unavailable until you make a change to one of the settings.

When you click the command-line icon, the Exchange Management Shell Command dialog box displays the corresponding Shell command.

To copy the Shell command, highlight all of the text in the dialog box and press CTRL+C. You can then paste the command into a script or into the Shell.
