Windows PowerShell is a command-line shell and scripting language that provides an administrator full access to applicable application programming interfaces (APIs). Administrators can interact directly with SharePoint 2013 to manipulate web applications, site collections, sites, lists and much more. In addition, an administrator can script cmdlets (pronounced “command-lets”).

You can manage most aspects of SharePoint 2013 in the SharePoint Management Shell. You can create new site collections, web applications, user accounts, service applications, proxies, and more.
