See How Long An Application Has Been Running

Using Microsoft’s PowerShell cmdlet: New-TimeSpan you can see how long an application has been running


New-TimeSpan -Start (get-process calc).StartTime


You will want to sub the word “calc” out for whatever application you are using. You can type “get-process” to see a list of all the ProcessNames running on the system.

    Is it possible to get a full history of how long for each day the application was used?
