Was wondering how do you go about logging a Data Collector Set(Specifically a Trace Session) using PerfMon on Windows 11. I understand there's a shortcut to create a dump on a crash, but how do i generate a etl file on call.

I Figured out how to do this; So thought i'd leave the steps I used for anyone searching in the future.

1. Open PerfMon

2. Select the 'Data Collector Sets' folder option in the left hand pane ->Following, Select the 'User Defined' Folder

3.In the Action Pane above there will be an icon, furthest on the right resembling a window with a golden asterisk.-> Click it to activate the wizard

4.Follow the Wizard instructions
