In PowerShell, logical operators are used for connecting the expressions or statements to make a single expression. The output of logical operators usually results in Boolean values, such as “**$True**” or “**$False**”. These are very helpful when checking multiple conditions at once. Logical operators include “**-and**”, “**-or**”, “**-xor**”, and the “**-not**”.

This write-up will observe several logical operators in PowerShell.

## What is the Process for Utilizing Logical Operators in PowerShell?

The below-listed logical operators are discussed in the further guide:

## Operator 1: Logical AND (-and)

In PowerShell, the “**AND**” operator is used to return the Boolean value “**$True**” if both expressions or conditions are correct:

$val2 = 25

($val1 -lt $val2) -and ($val2 -eq 25)

## Operator 2: Logical OR (-or)

The “**OR**” logical operator is used to return the “**$True**” value if at least one condition is correct:

$val2 = 25

($val1 -lt $val2) -or ($val2 -eq 20)

## Operator 3: Logical Exclusive XOR (-xor)

The logical exclusive “**XOR**” operator returns only the “**$True**” value when one statement is correct. If more than one statements are correct then it will return a “**$False**” value:

$val = 15

($val1 -lt $val2) -xor ($val2 -eq 15) -xor ($val1 -eq 10)

## Operator 4: Logical NOT (-not)

The logical operator ” NOT ” returns the inverse of the provided value. If some specific values return the “**$True**” then this operator will return the “**$False**” value:

$val2 = 30

-not ($val1 -lt $val2)

That was all about the usage of the logical operators in PowerShell.

## Conclusion

Logical operators in PowerShell are used to compare the values or expressions including strings, or integers. It gives the resultant output in the form of a Boolean value, such as “**True**” or “**False**”. If the expression is correct then the output will be “True”, otherwise it will be “False”. This write-up briefly explained the logical operators in PowerShell.
