    How to Save List of Running Processes to File in Windows


    A process is an instance of a program that is being executed. Each process running in Windows is assigned a unique decimal number called the process ID, or PID.

    If you like, saving a list of currently running processes on the local computer can be useful when you want to see which apps you have running, or need to post the file while getting help troubleshooting an issue.

    This tutorial will show you how to save a list of all currently running processes and their details to a text file in Windows 7, Windows 8, and Windows 10.

    Saves log files ?

    You can either read the files in Windows or my preferred method is.....

    Download CCcleaner from here...........

    CCleaner Professional | Try the world’s most trusted PC cleaner, free!

    You can then run cleaner, you will see the log files listed, then if you right click you can save as a text file and then have a read. You may also get an "error reporting" log listed seperatly.

    Remove-ItemProperty -Path "Registry::HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion
    \Applets\Paint\Recent File List" -name file9
    ...

    you get the idea. ( too lazy to put it in a for loop and test it.

    or just open regedit and remove all the fileX from that key.
