    When did I put Windows 10 on my computer?


    Does anyone know how I can find out when did I put Windows 10 on my computer?

    Windows 10 Pro (Mix of Builds) / Linux Mint

    Between Last July and now? Unless you were an insider ...

    I mean seriously, you don't remember the approximate time you upgraded?

    Is there a specific reason that you need this?

    I'm not sure if running slmgr /dlv from an elevated ("run as administrator") command prompt shows the activation date or not, but you can try it.

    Win 10 Pro x64

    Browse your C drive and look for a folder with the oldest " Date modified" date and that is probably the answer you are looking for.

    My Windows folder properties shows: Friday, ‎30 ‎October, ‎2015, ‏‎07:28:30, about when I finally did a clean install after upgrading last summer
    So far this seems like the most reliable time/date.

    A simple batch file I use, have it stored on a Thumb drive:

    systeminfo | find /i "install date"
    pause

    I put it in Notepad and saved with name dateinstalled but that could be anything, might not use Date by itself as that is a DOS command.
