Windows command prompt log to a file


I’d like to easily save the log of the Windows command prompt into a file. Is there any alternative to select everything and right-click on copy?


You can redirect the output of a cmd prompt to a file using > or >> to append to a file.


echo Hello World >C:\output.txt
echo Hello again! >>C:\output.txt


mybatchfile.bat >C:\output.txt

Note that using > will automatically overwrite the file if it already exists.

You also have the option of redirecting stdin, stdout and stderr.

See here for a complete list of options.
