Checking the uptime for a Windows system using PowerShell

If you want to determine how long a Microsoft system has been running since it was last rebooted from a command-line interface (CLI), you can do so using PowerShell. You can do so by subtracting the last boot time from the current date and time. The Get-Date cmdlet shows the current date and time and (Get-CimInstance Win32_OperatingSystem).LastBootUpTime shows the last time the system was booted.
