Changing the available cmdlets and providers by adding or removing snap-ins will only affect the current console, unless Export-Console is used to save the console. Built-in snap-ins that are installed with PowerShell cannnot be removed.


Remove the Micrsoft.Exchange snap-in from the current console:

PS C:> remove-pssnapinn -name Microsoft.Exchange
