Identical to Windows 10, the Event viewer can be accessed from the start menu by typing “event viewer” into the search field.

In order to launch the event viewer, right click on it and select “Run as administrator”.

Upon launch, the event viewer will look similar to this.

In order to view most of the logs listed in this guide, navigate to the Security tab on the right hand side of the Event Viewer window. It is under the Windows Logs dropdown menu.
