How, again, do you 'copy and paste' within the command window? Trying to get to the CBS.log again...

Hello Billy,

If this for the SFC details in the CBS.log, then you could use OPTION THREE in the tutorial below to create a sfcdetails.txt file on your desktop with them.

SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

Hope this helps, :)

In the command window right click > Mark > highlight the part you want to copy > right click again. Now you have the marked portion on the clipboard and can paste it anywhere - even into the command window.

If you want to copy everything from the command window, use 'Select All' in lieu of 'Mark'.

You could also copy within Command Prompt by right clicking choosing mark highlight want you want and press < ENTER> and to paste right click again and choose paste. You can't do the keyboard shortcut of Ctrl+V . You will just get " ^V " instead.
