Home Computer Use: Windows: Operating system install date

The tutor brings up a useful command for Windows.

The 2015-2016 academic year over, I’m looking into the Windows 10 upgrade. Today I began gathering information: For example, when was Windows 7 installed on this computer?

Searching the internet, a method was suggested: the user can open the Command Prompt (some might call it the terminal) from Start→All Programs→Accessories. Then, the command


will yield, among many other infos, a line Original Install Date. It reveals, for this computer, Dec 6, 2012, 11:30am.

I’ll be talking more about computer statistics and the Windows 10 upgrade in coming posts:)
