    How is it in 2019 Windows Event Viewer is still laughably unhelpful?


    Windows has it's hooks deep in a pc, so I am stunned that even today, Windows can still only give the most useless information for certain things such as random rebooting...It simply tells you 'The previous system shutdown at 1:50:27 PM on ‎7/‎15/‎2019 was unexpected.' ...Well no s*[email protected] ....LOL. Tell me WHY it shutdown unexpectedly! I chuckled at this in the same way the legendary pop-up windows error message from earlier windows versions that simply said 'error' and nothing else. LOL. It was that kind of uselessness.

    Yes nothing ever changes does it
    My best ever was when an app suddenly shut down and I got the very vague dialogue box pop up saying " Unknown application has caused unknown error in unknown module" It didn't give me much to go on.

    There are a number of old windows utilities that really could do with updating, such as Event viewer (as you mentioned), Device Manager, Disk Management, Computer Management and probably some others. Not only are they kinda old but they open really small and you always have to enlarge them.
