    How to Enable or Disable Print Logging in Windows 10 Event Viewer


    When a user prints anything in Windows 10, the print history in the print queue will be cleared by default after the print job as finished.

    If wanted, you can enable print logging in Event Viewer to keep a log of all print jobs by users on the computer. This will make it easy to view all print jobs in one place.

    This tutorial will show you how to enable or disable print logging in Event Viewer for all users in Windows 10.

    You must be signed in as an administrator to enable or disable print logging in Event Viewer.


    EXAMPLE: Print log in Event Viewer

    This will be in the Operational events in the Applications and Services Logs > Microsoft > Windows > PrintService log in Event Viewer.

    Shorcut path: %SystemRoot%\System32\Winevt\Logs\Microsoft-Windows-PrintService%4Operational.evtx

    Here's How:

    1 Open Event Viewer (eventvwr.msc).

    2 Expand open Applications and Services Logs > Microsoft > Windows In the left pane of Event Viewer. (see screenshot below)

    It may take a moment for Applications and Services Logs to refresh and populate once expanded open.

    4 In the middle pane of PrintService in Event Viewer, right click on Operational, and click/tap on Properties. (see screenshot below)

    5 Check (enable) or uncheck (disable - default) Enable logging for what you want, and click/tap on OK. (see screenshots below)

    If enabling print logging, you can also change the Maximum log size to what you want, and select what to do When maximum event long size is reached.

    Enabling event viewer log remotely or over GPO

    I am working on a project which requires me to enable one Event Log in the event viewer on Windows 10. When I did that manually everything works just fine. I cannot find a way to do that for multiple computers in the OU or the entire domain. I need to
    enable the following log Application and Services\Microsoft-Windows-DriverFrameworks-UserMode-Operational in order to detect USB drive insertion. This log is disabled by default in Windows 10. Is there a way to enable it on multiple computers or do I need
    to do that manually on every computer.

      Applications.
    3. Click Filter Current Log from extreme right pane. Then in the new windows check the box beside

    Clear All Event Logs in Event Viewer in Windows  


    FWIW CCleaner will clear the Event Viewer Logs - just check the box under Windows>Advanced>Windows Events Logs. run CCleaner and it's that simple. Much faster than most ,bat files I've tried. Just a suggestion.

  5. Event Viewer Keep Popping up automatically

    I have tried disabling and enabling various services with no luck. If Event Log is disabled, blank viewers are popping up. I have run scannow several times. Also every troubleshooting service in Control Panel. I have no third party anti-virus, only Windows
    Defender. I tried chkdsk also.

    I install every update immediately.

    I have tried every step in this thread I am capable of, not starting in safe mode, I don´t see the point frankly. I can't use the machine in safe mode.

    During this problem, about three weeks now, I have installed two or three updates. The problem remains.

    First I tried to disable Event Log but war denied due to an error, 1501, if I remember right. The first update disabled Event Log, which then showed up with blank panes. I then got an advice to enable some services which I did, Event Log went back to normal,
    nothing else happened.

    Right now I feel that I have too little technical knowledge, but on the other hand; it can´t be necessary for a common user to dig deep into the system with regedit and services.msc

    No log file locations in Event Viewer

    I opened Win 10's Event Viewer (first as myself, second as Administrator) and tried to create a Custom View.

    I chose reporting By Log, but when I clicked on the drop-down menu for log locations, none were listed.

    What gives?
