Determine the Day of the Week in 11 Days from Now with PowerShell

A couple of days ago, one of my kids asked me “What day of the week will it be in 11 days from now?”. My response was “I’m not sure, but I can tell you how to figure out the answer for yourself”. Open up PowerShell, wrap Get-Date in parentheses, place a dot or period afterwards, followed by AddDays, then 11 in another set of parentheses, and finally another dot or period followed by DayOfWeek.

(Get-Date).AddDays(11).DayOfWeek

Want to know what the day of the week was 11 days ago instead? Simply use negative 11 (-11) which subtracts that number of days from the current datetime instead of adding it as shown in the previous example.
