How to find your Windows installation date

To find my Windows installation date I usually looked at C:\WINDOWS creation date, but right now that seems a bit older than I remember...

A more reliable way is to ask Windows about it and that is through System Info tool, filtering for "install date".

Start a command line (cmd.exe) and type:

systeminfo | find /i "install date"

  1. In a non-english Windows installation you would have to filter by a local language keyword.

    F.e., in spanish Windows, better to use:

    systeminfo | find /i "inst"
