2013 HELP: Logs of local chat and IMs --Store

Store logs of local chat and IMs: 
-
You can  keep logs of your communications.  Here is how:

  • V3.2 Preferences button (gears)
  • Privacy tab
  • Save nearby chat logs to my computer (Check)
  • Save IM logs to my computer  (Check)
  • Add timestamp to each line in chat log    (Check)
I prefer to leave the default destination file unchanged, because it seems to be common across viewers.  If they all put the logs in the same place, I don't have to wonder where to look.  You may want to copy the destination file name while you have the window open.

-
On Windows, the destination file will have the general form:   
C:\Users\Name\AppData\Roaming\SecondLife
Name will be the name the computer has for you. 
-
To find the log file on Windows,  you probably have to enable the ability to see *hidden folders*  To set that ability on Windows 7:
  • Click the start button or press the windows key
  • Click your personal folder
  • Click organize in the top menu line
  • on the drop-down, click Folder and Search options
  • in the resulting window, click "Show all folders".
Once you find the file, you can create a shortcut and put it in the folder you use for other Second Life operations.  Then you don't have to find it again.
