Out-GridView always produces a table with one object per line:
Get-Process -Id $pid | Out-GridView
Occasionally, it would be more helpful to display the object properties vertically, with one property per line in a grid view window.
To do exactly that, take a look at Flip-Object: this function takes objects and splits them up into individual name-value-objects per property. They can then pipe to Out-GridView. This way, object properties can be examined in much more detail:
Get-Process -Id $pid | Flip-Object | Out-GridView
Here is the Flip-Object function that does the trick:
$instance = $_
Get-Member -MemberType *Property |
Select-Object -ExpandProperty Name |
Name = $_
Value = $instance.$_
