Exporting the windows security event logs with details

I have a windows 2008 AD environment and I'm trying to export the filtered security logs from a DC to a file.

I'm trying to export the filtered security log ex) EventID 4625 to a file ex) csv  but not as evtx.
It only exports out the keywords, Data and Time, Source, Event ID, and Task Category columns when I export as a csv format.

In addition to the above, I need the below fields or what's in the details tab exported so the user can be identified.
Is there a way to do this?

Security ID:
Account Name:
Account Domain:
Login ID:

I suggest use PowerShell Get-EventLog cmdlet.  Refer to link below for more information:

Instead of "Export List", try "Save Log File As..."

There are many scripts for the same. Please have a look at this link and hope it helps you..
