You can create additional sessions, called "Windows PowerShell sessions" or "PSSessions" on your computer or another computer. Unlike the sessions that Windows PowerShell creates for you, you control and manage the PSSessions that you create. PSSessions play an important role in remote computing.

From a Windows perspective, a session is a Windows process on the target computer. Each session is configured independently. It includes its own properties, its own execution policy, and its own profiles. The environment that exists when the session is created persists for its lifetime even if you change the environment on the computer. All sessions are created in a global scope, even sessions that you create in a script....
