ok ... it's saved as *all files* ... how do I 'run it' ?


I put that code into Run ... but got a Windows message
Win cannot find 'Get event log'. Make sure the name is spelled correctly etc '

Looks like you missed a step buddy, I'll try to be clearer. Put that code into notepad, then go to File> Save as.

Put the filename as hotspotevent.ps1 and underneath it there is an option which currently says "Text Documents (*.txt)"

Click this and change it to All Files (*.*)

Once done, go to where you saved it and double click the file. It typically is a white paper with a blue styled icon upon it which looks like an arrow.

(Or early, depending how you look at it!)

Could you right click the file hotspotevent.ps1 and run as administrator?

My bad, I'm in server mode.

Looks like default settings block powershell scripts.

Can you instead go ahead and go to the startmenu, type powershell and open the first result. Paste that code in the sleek blue command prompt and press return. Check your C:\ afterward.

Apologies

Okay, in hindsight guiding you through using eventlog would've been the better option but Im now determined to have this work :P

Thats saying you dont have access to the file - chances are you arent an Administrator of the machine by default, no matter. Change the code to the following:
Code:
 Get-EventLog Application -After (Get-Date).AddHours(-1) | Format-List >> C:\Users\Michael\Desktop\output_hotspot.txt

i'm not only one who has ever used this laptop ... so have never had problem with Admin rights before ..

2nd capture will show result of new code

Question About Smart Phone
I know very little about Smart Phones. I have the kind of cell where all you can do on it is talk. A person at my office has a Smart Phone and told me that she could press a buttom and turn the whole room into a Wi-Fi area. I don't see how this could work. Is what she said true? Thanks,
