Day 10

‘Learn where the application logs are and read them’

There are a number of ways to get to the event logs this is just my preference but it depends too if I’m using the open command prompt then I just enter eventvwr. It looks like this C:\Users\Kim>eventvwr

  • Navigate to Cortana search box
  • Input ‘Event Logs’
  • Click on Side Bar menu > Applications and Service Logs
  • Click on file

Interesting what happened when I searched for the config file it seemed windows tried to open up the file through Visual Studios software. Upon investigation, it looks like my file associations were mixed up in the config file and I verified my system had been updated to have VSTS open to read config files. Definitely not something I personally did but anyone who works in windows and uses Microsoft systems probably gets where I am coming from right now.
