Event Viewer

The Event viewer tool provides you with a list of all system events – both errors, warnings and information events. The event viewer can be accessed from Settings > System > Event viewer and is basically a list of system events with filtering options (Figure 1.1).

Each event is listed with key data – Date, Level, Category, Action, and a Description – and the list can be filtered or searched.

Click any event to view the event details (Figure 1.2).
