I actually up voted your answer as it does add to the discussion. Just not the right answer to the scenario I was interested in. Thanks anyway @kce

comment Windows Event Viewer is slow on newer versions of Windows
I'm well aware of the power of PowerShell, including the CmdLets for the event log but the question was really all about restoring an existing capability. I'm all for the command line as a default but sometimes a GUI just suits the browsing scenario where you don't really know exactly what you are looking for.

comment Windows Event Viewer is slow on newer versions of Windows
It's nothing to do with the size of the logs or dividing the logs into multiple different logs. It is just the snappyness of the tool when viewing each log. I appreciate the new viewer adds support for various scenarios but I still want my primary scenario to be as good as it used to be. I found a solution to have the best of both worlds .

comment How To Disconnect Users Accessing a Windows Shared Folder using PowerShell
I have used OpenFiles in the meantime but because I want to be selective about which connections I disconnect, I end up using Select-String to try and parse the output of openfiles /query /v. I think my dodgy scripting skills make this a bit fragile and it would be easier for me if I was able to deal with the connections as Objects rather than passing the string.
