How to View Troubleshooting History and Details in Windows 10


If something isn't working in Windows 10, running a troubleshooter might help. Troubleshooters can find and fix many common problems for you.

Whenever you run a troubleshooter, a history of its details is kept for you to be able to view if needed.

This tutorial will show you how to view your troubleshooting history and details for the actions you performed while running troubleshooters in Windows 10.



Here's How:

1. Open the Control Panel (icons view), and click/tap on the Troubleshooting icon.

2. Click/tap on the View history link at the top left corner in Troubleshooting. (see screenshot below)
