Saving the console output to a text file? then hide console

When running a script, a console output appears showing a concise status. How can I save this console output to a text file and hide the console? (I use the /log="logfile.txt" but it's long.)

Thank you. :)

I recommend you use XML logging:

If you insist on what you see on the console, you would have to write a wrapping application or script that runs hidden WinSCP, and redirects its output into its own stream.

Or use .NET assembly with its Session.OutputDataReceived event

I've tried the command below where it saved the console output to myconsole.txt. However, when I opened it, there is no line break/return key. Any idea how to insert a line break automatically?

winscp /log="mylogfile.txt" /xmllog="myxmllog.xml" /script="test.txt" >myconsole.txt

Thank you. :)
