Worspaces store Computers tree and Opened event log views
including windows placement, filters, log loading options, etc).
Workspaces don't store Event Log Explorer Preferences. All global

computer - double click on the log opens the event log
Log view is a visual representation of event log or event log
file. Log view consist of event list, description box and control
toolbar. You can open as many log views as you wish. Depending on
the user interface style, log views are presented either as MDI
child windows (for multiply document user interface) or as tabs
(for tabbed document user interface). Active log view is the
topmost log view (for MDI) or the active tab (for TDI).
All main menu commands for event log management apply to active
log view only.
