The (Windows) Event Viewer shows the event of the system.

The "Windows Logs" section contains (of note) the Application, Security and System logs - which have existed since Windows NT 3.1.

Event Tracing for Windows (ETW) providers are displayed in the "Applications and Services Log" tree. Logging for individual components can be view, enabled/disabled - and are a great place to start troubleshooting a component.

    It was informative but thought one could add as to how to read Application error logs and how to understand the error messages.
    Also, could have examples as to what kind of messages come through.
