Windows 7: How to make scan results display longer on screen?

Gotta be fast with the PrintScreen key, or you can also read the result logs in Event Viewer.

Check Disk (chkdsk) - Read Event Viewer Log

See, you guys think everybody knows there is such a thing as PrintScreen Key. I did not until just now and I had to google(actually Bing) to find where it is.

This is the answer I was looking for with this thread. (Thanks, Shawn). I have always sensed there must be a key or key combo to freeze these scan results.

What do I do with PrintScreen key? Should I press it as soon as the details of scan starts on screen? Or as soon as it ends...just before quick disappearance ? Short tap or keep on pressing? And then what happens next? My printer has no ink, printing is not an option. I guess what happens next can be saved? And will it work with the result on the command prompt black screen?

PrintScreen wouldn't work at boot. PrintScreen can only be used in Windows.

If you like, the tutorial below can give you more details on how to use PrintScreen, and how to use Paint to create the screenshot images from it.

Oh no! Thanks for the tut...but I am still working on chkdsk details recovery.

The event viewer option did not work....Find is grayed out. Powershell option did work. Thanks.

Grayed out Find option is concerning. I tried it in both users accounts, and even in safe mode... to no avail. I went to folder option in control panel and checked Show hidden files, folders and drives...again, to no avail.

I ran both sfc /scannow and chkdsk scans but came out empty for anything that needs repair. So what's wrong? How do I un-gray the Find option?

Hmm, odd. Please post back a screenshot showing Event Viewer with this to see if it may help to ID anything that may be a cause.

They are identical to your snipped shots except I cannot go past right clicking Application(which results in pop out box that has menu of options that includes Find because the moment I click Snipping tool app, the menu box disappears).

I tried to do screenshot with PrintScreen key but nothing happens when I press it. When I press fn+PrintScreen keys together, Scroll lock on warning pops out. Maybe I am pressing on the wrong key?(it's next to f12 and labeled Insert.scroll.

How about clicking on Find in the Actions right pane when you have Applications opened?

OR

Actions (menu bar) -> Find with you have Applications opened?

I just noticed a difference between our snipped shots. Mine does not show Find untilI accidentally tapped Application

Then it opened to more detailed right pane now showing find. And when I right clicked Application, Find is no longer grayed out. So now I can click it from both left and right lanes.

However, when I clicked it and entered chkdsk, and clicked Find again nothing happens.

Why?
