    How to Enable Verbose Boot with full list of Files Loaded at Startup?

    Hi all,

    Trying to work out if it's possible to cause Windows 10 to display a full list of files loaded during system startup as the machine boots?

    What I mean is, similar to very old versions of Windows (3.1 and 95) where you'd get a full list of files, drivers, plugins etc. being loaded exactly as they were loaded during system startup.

    Similar to what you see happening in this video:

    Windows 7 verbose boot - YouTube

    I tried the Verbose Boot option in msconfig. I also tried the Highly Detailed Messages option in GPEdit.msc and the Registry Key for Verbose Boot in Regedit.

    All those do is cause a few messages to flash during login and system shutdown, and not in the form of a list, so it's difficult to see what's happening.

    I already know how to create a .txt log file of the boot process.

    Much thanks for your assistance.

    Hi, presumably you didn't tick boot log as here: (ok it's '7, near enough)
    Monitor Windows 7 boot logs with the help of msconfig - TechRepublic
    as you said you didn't get a log file.

    Or is that what you mean by "I already know how to create a .txt log file of the boot process."?

    Yes, I selected to create a boot log. That's what I meant by the second last line of the post.

    I was just hoping Windows 10 could output a list of drivers, .inf files, .bat files etc. as it loaded them similar to how older versions of Windows would boot up.

    I always found this immensely helpful in troubleshooting of all varieties.

    Bumping this thread to see if I can get some helpful replies.

    ​Check the link in my initial post to get an idea of what I mean.
