Windows PowerShell Home
F8 is case-sensitive

User(s) can reproduce this bug
In PowerShell, everything is case-insensitive by default (a good choice if you ask me).
But the F8 key that searches the command history for a command starting with what you have typed (feature inherited from CMD) does a case-sensitive match (just like CMD ;-)... not convenient at all 'cos you must remember whether you typed Get-Process or get-process.
Please make this case-insensitive.
How often does this happen?
Have you seen this problem before in this product?
I don't know if this issue existed previously
Type the following in a PowerShell console:
Nothing happens when you print F8 because 'g' doesn't match 'Get-Process'
The 'g' should match 'Get-Process' and the 'Get-Process' command should be recalled.
