How to find Windows uptime?

1. Go to “Start” -> “Run”.

2. Write “CMD” and press on “Enter” key.

Uptime.exe Tool Allows You to Estimate Server Availability with Windows NT 4.0 SP4 or Higher
Uptime.exe is a standalone program. To install the tool, simply copy the file into your Windows NT directory. You may then run the tool at a command prompt.

For extended help on this tool, type the following at a command prompt:
uptime /help
This tool is most accurate when run with administrator privileges, however, even without administrator privileges, the tool attempts to make a best estimate based on available information. In all cases, the results should be considered estimates.

It is important to note that the uptime and availability measurements reflect the local view of the operating system only. The “Total Uptime” measurement refers to the sum of all the time during the measured period where the operating system reported itself to be in normal operation. It does not reflect times when the server might be unavailable for other reasons, such at network outages.

It is also important to note that although the operating system is functioning normally, this does not mean that the server programs running on that server are operating normally. For instance, the operating system may be available, but a database running on that server may not be operating correctly.
