Is there any way to find out how long my computer has been on?
If you leave your computer running 24/7 (24 hours a day, 7 days a week), you might be interested in determining the amount of uptime that has accumulated since your last reboot. Luckily, it’s very easy to find that information in Windows XP, Vista and Windows 7. Let’s take a look!
Tracking Uptime in Vista & Windows 7
To find uptime in Vista or Windows 7, right click on your taskbar and select Task Manager. Or, use the keyboard shortcut, (Ctrl+Shift+Esc).
Now, with the Task Manager open, click on the Performance tab and you’ll see the amount of uptime listed under the System section.
Tracking Uptime in XP (Professional edition only)
To find the uptime in XP, go to Start>Run, type in cmd and then click OK.
That will bring up a command prompt. Type in systeminfo and then hit Enter. It will take a few minutes for the analysis to complete and get your results, but when it’s finished, you’ll see your uptime listed in days, hours, minutes and seconds.
