Summary: Learn how to use Windows PowerShell to view process start time information.

Hey, Scripting Guy! Question How can I see the name and the start time of each process on my system?

Hey, Scripting Guy! Answer Start Windows PowerShell with admin rights. Use the Get-Process cmdlet and select name and starttime, as shown here.

Get-Process | select name, starttime

Note   If you do not start Windows PowerShell with admin rights, you will not see system process information.

  • I have been having trouble using this to get the StartTime of a process on a remote computer.

    Get-Process -computername Server1 | Where-Object { $_.name -like RunningProcess } | select name, starttime

  • This certainly does NOT work using get-process -cn ... To get the time, one has to enter a PSSsession on the remote computer.
