How to Find Exact Date & Time of Windows Installation

You might have installed Windows 7 or Windows 8 and at some point you might have gone into some trouble or so to just find out when you actually installed your Windows on that machine. Well while installing we never make a note of what's the date and time on which we are installing any Windows version on our computer, but Windows automatically makes a note of it and stores it up for you to access later, so in case you need the date and time you can easily access it.

So now the little command I am stating below when entered will show you the exact date and time on which you installed your Windows OS. So now without wasting time lets jump in to the steps mentioned below.

  1. Open Run by pressing Windows + R key or by using Start Menu.
  2. Now type cmd to open Command Prompt.
  3. Now in command prompt type below code or copy & paste it and press Enter.

    systeminfo | find /i "Original Install Date"

  4. Now just wait for few seconds as it will process and load the information.
  5. So now after few seconds you will see all the information like seen in the above image, so you can see the Original Install date and time.

So this is the way to see and access original date and time on which your windows OS was installed. Well hopefully this will work fine for you so have fun kudos :)
