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

How to make scan results display longer on screen?

After checkdisk and other diagnostic scans (and I remember with my old Vista PC, after BSOD), screen shows the result...in nanoseconds, not long enough for even fast reader that I am to read the whole thing. Is there a way to slow down such super evanescent display? Or freeze it?

You pipe the output of your command into WinTee. WinTee shows it on the console while also saving to file. See the write-up on the download site.

Hello Pappi,

If you like, you could use PowerShell or read the event viewer log for chkdsk to see the results.

Thanks, Shawn. for the tutorial on chkdsk and Event Viewer/ Power shell. But does it also apply to BSOD display?

Are you talking about running chkdsk on reboot? If so I don't think any of the above will work.

Blue Screen Of Death(BSOD) occurs after crashing usually from Viruses or misconfigured/incompatible drivers or programs or malfunctioning HD and other hardware.

BSOD display is in frightening scary annoying print that cascades through the whole screen and then disappears quickly before anyone can read entirely what the whole debacle is about.

And I think it is logged in Dump file folder which users cannot open, unless user is Brink...or God.

No. The details of the BSOD are contained in a .dmp file that is located in C:\Windows\MiniDump. These files are opened & read using WinDBG, where the contents can be analysed to determine the cause of the BSOD.

Thanks Golden.

But I just realized my C:\Windows\MiniDump is missing(not listed). With the old Vista I had two dump files. one mini and another not mini(bigger). Are they missing because I have, so far(knock on wood), not experienced BSOD?

Yes, the minidump folder is created on the first BSOD.

Another folder I am denied access even with administrator account is C:\Windows\Logs\CBS which contains the result of sfc /scannow...which I am not so concerned much as I have no clue what to do with and how to read it.

Accidentally, I found out access to it is not denied in Safe Mode with administrator account.. Strange.
