Three Ways To Enable Verbose Status Messages In Windows 7
Windows offers the option to display certain messages during its startup and shutdown. These are refered to as Verbose Status Messages and tell us the processes or steps that the Windows operating system is taking during startup, shutdown, logon, and logoff operations. These verbose messages tell you what Windows is doing in the background while carrying out these operations.
You may have seen such messages when your Windows is starting or shutting down. These are Verbose Status Messages.
Verbose status messages can be very helpful when you are debugging or troubleshooting certain Windows problems, including a slow startup, shutdown, logon, or logoff behavior. If your Windows is just not shutting down, verbose status messages may tell you where exactly or at which stage, your Windows is getting ‘stuck’.
There are some regular messages you will always see even when verbose messages are not enabled, like Applying your personal settings or Applying computer settings. But when you enable verbose status messages, you will see additional status messages which will help you while debugging or troubleshooting.
