Complete Tutorial on how to lookup and find your logs on windows!

Looking up logs is handy if you need to provide proof for missing items or missing job levels, as these issues happen quite fequently.
It's also helpful for other things as well.
In this tutorial i'll show you exactly how to get to your logs and what each log means and how to use them.

Warning: Do not alter logs when providing proof for an issue you have, doing so can result in punishments.

1. Go to the folder where minecraft stores your files. Easiest method is to press the windows button and type %appdata%

2. Next go into your minecraft folder. in this case '.minecraft'

3. Once you open the .minecraft folder look for 'logs' there you will find all your log files. The notation of the files is as following: Year-Month-Day-Login session. The latest log file is called 'latest'

4. Next, open the file you need and find what you are looking for and open this in any textediting program. Then hit CTRL+F to find what you're looking for.

If you have any questions or need help with certain aspects of this, please feel free to make a comment on this thread.
I'll try to answer all questions that you may have.
