    Is there any way to divert the perfmon /report as an .html file on the desktop?
    It might be me but I just can't seem to get it to output the file.

    Thanks in advance.

    Hello Paul,

    You could right click on the report in the left pane in option 2, and click on View > Folder to see the report's .html file.

    On further investigation, it appears that this is quite complex and can only be achieved by somehow extracting the created file and converting it into a readable and usable format, although I have not found [ Internet ] a solution yet!

    I might look at this again at some time in the future!
