When was the last time your computer restarted?

It's important to make sure you regularly restart your computer so that it runs faster and has fewer issues. It is recommended that you reboot your computer every few days. Sometimes it seems like the computer has restarted, but it really has just gone into a deep sleep, which is not the same thing. So how can you tell when your computer was last restarted?

Windows computers have a task bar that runs along the bottom of your screen:

Just do a RIGHT click on any blank part of the task bar. A menu will come up. Click on Task Manager. You will be prompted for a password. Please enter your StarID password.

When the Task Manager opens, click on the Performance tab and look for the number indicating Up Time:

The Up Time number is configured as Days:Hours:Minutes:Seconds. So the above screenshot shows that the computer was last rebooted 4 days, 1 hour, 31 minutes, and 18 seconds. What's most important is how many hours ago the computer was last rebooted.
