Event Viewer, Custom Views, SUMMARY PAGE EVENTS RRS feed

  • Question

  •  

    On Vista Ultimate, I was exploring the Event Viewer, and deleted the "Summary View":

     

    Event viewer

                    Custom Views

                                    Administrative Events

                                    Summary Page Events

                    Windows Logs

     

    I have two other machines with Vista Ultimate.  Neither of them have this view.

     

    How can one recreate this view?

  • Hmmm....  It came back by itself.  But, why not on my other two machines?

  • Here is how you can add it to show all critical events such as unexpected shutdowns:
    1. On the left-most pane, select "Event Viewer (Local)" (or machinename connected to)
    2. In the middle pane, you will see a section at the top named "Summary of Administrative Events"
    3. Right-click on "Critical"
    4. Select "View All Instances of This Event"
    5. In the left-most pane, a new Custom View will be created called "Summary page events", and by clicking in it, you will now see the most critical events.

    This is a signature.
