How to Find Microsoft Windows Uptime?

Steve Ballmer

Unix and Linux users can easily determine the uptime of their system by entering the command who -b.  Microsoft Windows users can determine their system uptime by following Microsoft KB article 555737.

  1. From the Windows command bar, choose “Start” -> “Run”.
  2. Type “CMD” and press “Enter” key. A DOS-style command window will appear.
  3. From the command window, enter the command net statistics server or net stats srv at the prompt and press “Enter” key.
  4. Look for the line that start with “Statistics since …”, which provides the time the server was last booted.

Definitely an article worth bookmarking.

  1. The KB is not available…

    I used to use “systeminfo” command in Windows – not sure though if it is supported in all Windows versions.
