Hey, Scripting Guy! Question How can I easily find events from all the event logs—both standard and the ETW logs that are related to Windows PowerShell?

Hey, Scripting Guy! Answer Use the Get-WinEvent cmdlet and use a wild card pattern for the provider name, as shown here.

Get-WinEvent -ProviderName *powershell*

Note   You may want to run the command with Admin rights because some logs require Admin rights for access.
