    Need shortcut to log file "System"

    Tried PowerShell "PS C:\WINDOWS\system32> $events=get-winevent -logname "System"" This did not produce an error comment but didn't show the log either. I admit complete unfamiliarity with Power Shell. Perhaps there is a way to open Event Viewer directly to Windows System?

    Hi, if you use the freeware program Event Log Explorer, that has command line options which will let you do that.

    Thus you can create a shortcut.
