How to see startup log/problems


I am trying to configure neovim. and writing my startup file.
What I am struggling is debugging (verifying) my startup file.

I noticed, even when I put syntax error into init.vim, I do not get any messages on startup of nvim.

How can I get startup log messages and errors?


PS: I am using nvim-qt on windows!

Have you tried :messages to get last printed messages including errors?

I am stupid. I was writing into the wrong init files.
If I write them in the correct one, I see the messages on startup and when typing :messages.

Thanks for your time!
