If something goes wrong, the logs are a good place to start.
neo4j.log for each DBMS can be accessed directly from Desktop and opens in a separate window, which allows you to keep it in the background.
This is the standard log and contains general information about Neo4j.
Please see Operations Manual → Logging for more information about other Neo4j log files.
Desktop has its own log as well, with information about the application.
The Desktop log file can be found here:
Windows before 1.0.19:
Windows after 1.0.19:
%USERPROFILE%\.Neo4jDesktop\ (or any other user defined path)
