I have installed Microsoft log tail utility but I am not getting the tail command. Is there a problem with installation or other issue. I appreciate your help. How to find out tail command?
I do not find the tail command on Microsoft log tail utility
Hi there Curtis Marry,
The tail command is used to display the last few lines of a files or simply to monitor files as they are created.
If a command is not available through the utility you are using, it doesn't necessarily mean that it's not working, it's most likely just working in the background.
To access the tail log, you will need to use the CMD. Navigate to the folder where your logs are stored using the CD command, and once you're in the right folder enter the following command:
tail -f *nameofthelog*.log
