Have you ever wished that you could save the output from the command line to a file for further examination? Well, here is how you do it! I am going to be using Windows 7 for my example.
-First, click on the start menu.
-Then, open up a new terminal window (search for it by typing cmd.exe in a directory search bar).
-Alright, so we will use ipconfig for our example (displays your computers network config)
-Navigate to whatever directory you would like the text file to appear in.
-Type in the following command:
ipconfig/all > Test.txt-Press Enter.
-Notice the ">" character after the ipconfig switch. What that character is essentially
doing is directing the output that would normally appear in the terminal to whatever
destination you specify after the character.
-I chose a test file called Test.txt as the target of my output.
-Navigate to whatever directory you saved the file in, and open up the file.
-Voila! Terminal output has been directed to the specified text file!
