Windows: Clear Event Logs

Fastest Way to Clear Windows Event Logs in Windows

It is demanding to entirely clean up Event Viewer log of Windows events by hand as there is no native Windows option to do that with one click.

The quickest way is to initiate command prompt with cmd using Run as Administrator option, and inside that elevated environment type:

for /f %x in ('wevtutil el') do wevtutil cl "%x"

That’s it.
