    This takes the data from file1.txt without the first line, then prints it into file2.txt

    Get-Content file1.txt | Select-Object -Skip 1 | Out-File file2.txt

    But it will be usefull to know if you are working with a .txt file, a .csv, .xml or other type of file.

    This should work:

    get-content $file |
        select -Skip 1 |
        set-content "$file-temp"
    move "$file-temp" $file -Force
