Sometimes it will so be difficult to search a line which it has the specific word or content using Ctrl+F in the huge log file. Found out a easiest way that will very much useful for our daily task
For Example: I want to search the line which hold the word “Build” in the text file winstore.log.
PS C:\Temp> dir .\Winstore.LOG | Select-String “Build”
If you want to search in multiple file
PS C:\Temp> dir .\Winsto*.LOG | Select-String “Build”
If you want to export the output to text file
PS C:\Temp> dir .\Winsto*.LOG | Select-String “Build” > Output.txt
Note: You can’t get output if you used Export-CSV cmdlet & this search can be done only notepad format files
