Tail with cmder (or powershell)

With powershell it's really easy to tail log files. But to make it even easier, I've added a Tail with Powershell context menu in windows. Just save the next lines as a .reg file and run it.

Btw, mine is called 'Tail with cmder' just because cmder is awesome!

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\*\shell\Tail with cmder\command]
@="C:\\Windows\\system32\\WindowsPowerShell\\v1.0\\powershell.exe -NoExit -Command Get-Content -Wait -Tail 10 '%1'"
