For those who want to record everything they do when using Windows PowerShell, I have an easy free solution that will give you everything you need.

The command is “Start-Transcript”. Once executed, PowerShell will start recording all activity within the current session to a log file located in your “My Documents” folder.

To stop recording just enter “Stop-Transcript”.

This is an easy solution with no need for 3rd party apps. The log file is easy to read and has all the activity recorded during the session.

 

Start-Transcript

“Enter your commands or scripts”

Stop-Transcript
