Quickly find uptime of Windows server

When trying to figure out the uptime of a Windows server, there is no clear cut answer when looking at Task Manager or in the Control Panel. To quickly find out the uptime, do the following:

  1. click ‘Start’
  2. type ‘cmd’ (without quotes)
  3. click the Command Prompt application
  4. once in the app, type ‘net stats server’ and press Enter
  5. in the results that populate, look for the line starting with ‘Statistics since…’ and you should see a date and time next to it. That is the last time that the computer booted up.

That’s it…a nice, quick and easy tutorial to get that (what seems to be hidden) Windows server uptime!
