    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?

    Error in Event Viewer

    Hi,



    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.



    As you have mentioned, you have performed a repair installation on the computer and you see Event 508, 510 and 533 in Event Viewer.



    I would like to inform that if you see any critical error in Event Viewer, please share the event logs with us to help you with the appropriate troubleshooting steps. Please follow the steps mentioned below to share the event logs:



    1. Press Windows + X from the keyboard, select
      Event Viewer.
    2. Expand Windows Logs from the left pane and select
      Applications.
    3. Click Filter Current Log from extreme right pane. Then in the new windows check the box beside
      Error and click OK.
    4. Now, look for a critical Error in the list and note down the message/information from the
      General Tab in the lower section.


    Please reply with the status of the issue, we will be glad to help you further.



    Regards,

    windows 10 event viewer logs deleted after WIN update wHY?

    Memory Diagnostics log(s) "Missing" in Event Viewer

    Completed Memory Diagnostics (twice) but can find no (0) sign of any such log in Event
    Viewer
    (RH pane)

    Anyone know how to locate Diagnostics log?

    Event Viewer lists "Windows Memory Diagnostic scheduled the testing of the computer's memory to run immediately" but
    not the actual Diagnostics run(s)/logs.

    Acer Aspire R5 571T 57Z0, Win 10 Home
