Log Command Window Output Command

Copies all input and output from the Command window into a file.

Tools.LogCommandWindowOutput [filename] [/on|/off] [/overwrite]

filename

Optional. The name of the log file. By default, the file is created in the user's profile folder. If the file name already exists, the log is appended to the end of the existing file. If no file is specified, the last file specified is used. If no previous file exists, a default log file is created, called cmdline.log.

TipTip

To change the location where the log file is saved, enter the full path of the file, surrounded by quotation marks if the path contains any spaces.

/on

Optional. Starts the log for the Command window in the specified file and appends the file with the new information.

/off

Optional. Stops the log for the Command window.

/overwrite

Optional. If the file specified in the filename argument matches an existing file, the file is overwritten.

If no file is specified, the file cmdline.log is created by default. By default, the alias for this command is Log.

This example creates a new log file, cmdlog, and starts the command log.
