Learn about Windows PowerShell
Summary: Learn how to use Windows PowerShell to find applications that are hanging.
How can I find which applications are hanging on my desktop computer that is running Windows 8?
Use the Get-EventLog cmdlet to query the application log for InstanceID 1002 and a source of *hang*. Select TimeWritten and Message to see what applications are hanging and when these hangs occur.
Get-EventLog -LogName application -Newest 20 -InstanceId 1002 -source *hang*| select timewritten, message
This is really cool!
There are things you can do in Powershell which are so powerful, but unfortunately it is not automatic for me yet and I use it just for complex tasks...
Thanks for sharing!
@Happysysadm Yes, PowerShell really is powerful. I use it for everything, and there are so many cool things with Windows 8 or Windows Server 2012 that are just a cmdlet away, it is my go to tool.
