You may be looking for Eshell, but to be sure you have to try, I have
no idea how well this works in Windows. After running your stuff in
it, all session is present in Emacs' buffer (if I undestand it
correctly) and you can do with a buffer however you please (within
limitations of Emacs, which are broad), including save to file:

    Eshell is a shell-like command interpreter implemented in Emacs
    Lisp. It invokes no external processes except for those requested
    by the user. It is intended to be an alternative to the IELM (see
    Emacs Lisp Interaction) REPL for Emacs and with an interface
    similar to command shells such as bash, zsh, rc, or 4dos.
