    Odd Request: Clearing the recently viewed nodes in Event Viewer


    I know this a weird question, but I'm looking for a way to clear the recently viewed nodes part of the Event Viewer, or at least the location of where the recently viewed nodes are saved in the registry.

    I'm not looking for how to clear events from event viewer, just specifically the recently viewed nodes bit. Deleting "changes to the view of a console file" does not help here.

    :)

    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.

    Win 10 Event Viewer -- cannot save filter in Custom Views

    I try to keep up a custom view for the Event Viewer. Since Win 10 was upgraded I can add exclusions such as ...-1234,-567,-89... but these are not saved upon exit from Event Viewer. Many repeated events are reported and most are not important.

    Nor can I find where the filter data is stored: registry, sys32, etc.

    Steps: Launch Event Viewer -- find one or more events in the custom view log -- launch Filter Current Custom View -- Add the events to be filtered out (including a (-)minus sign and comma separation. (note that in the current session, the events are
    removed as is expected) -- close the Filter Current Custom View (note that there is no Apply button) -- close and restart Event Viewer.

    Results: added event filter numbers are removed from the filter list -- any filter brought over from Win 8 upgrade still remain.

    Fixing this would be great. Knowing where the data is stored would also be fine.
