On Windows 7 Ultimate, is there a way to see when I logged on into the current session?

I want to find out how long I have been at the PC / when I started it up.

Use the following command in a Command Prompt:

net user [username]

It will be next to Last Logon.

If your screen becomes locked and you use the method above it will display the last time the screen was unlocked. You will have to use this command below to get the initial login time:

+1: "Net Statistics" tells you when the computer booted, not when the user logged in. – Ƭᴇcʜιᴇ007 Jul 13 '11 at 16:03
This doesn't seem to work if your account is from a different domain than the default domain for the computer you're logged into. At least my attempts to specify a different domain to search didn't work. – Trebor Rude Nov 7 '14 at 18:05

You can also use


to see the login time.

Nice, that's a new one to me. Turns out it's a 'shortcut' to another usable option: C:\>query user. – Ƭᴇcʜιᴇ007 Jul 13 '11 at 16:52

Go to the command prompt and type:

net statistics srv

perfect, thanks – atticae Jul 13 '11 at 15:55

Do this at a command line, I think it will show what you want:

net statistics server

The "Statistics since 7/12/2011 6:28:15 PM" line is the last time the computer was rebooted.

Use the command:

net stats srv

Where it says statistics since... is when you logged on/booted up.

You can also use


and next to

System Boot Time:

It will be in the format

This does exactly the same as the built-in quser, but is commercial. – slhck Oct 26 '12 at 12:44

I had the same issue for a network PC and this gave me results I was looking for:

wmic netlogin get name, fullname, lastlogon

...this will provide info for all users that have logged in.

The exact answer probably depends on your exact situation.

The 'query user' or 'quser' command will show the last time you logged into the computer.

The 'net user ' command works, if you're not on a Domain. But (as someone else pointed out), this will show the last time you unlocked your screensaver.

If you're on a Domain, the 'net user /domain' command will show the last time that you logged into the Domain. But note that this time can differ from the last time you logged into the server.

If you sit down and power on your server every day, then the 'net statistics server' or 'net stats srv' command will show you the power-on time. Note that this time is not changed when the server hibernates or sleeps.
