Setting Options for Log Files

Windows XP offers fantastic capabilities for configuring just about every feature of the operating system. This capability extends to the Event Viewer log files, and is an especially important feature for these files, since different log files may be more important to one user than another.

To begin the configuration process, bring up the properties pages for the log file you want to make configurable. For the purposes of this chapter, use the Application log file. To open the properties page, right-click on the log file in the Event pane, and from the menu that appears, select Properties; alternatively, you can highlight the log file in the Event pane, then select Properties from the Action menu or click on the Properties icon (which looks like a hand holding a piece of paper). The properties page appears (see Figure 16.14).
