    um, I don’t think so… the output on the computer I’m writing this on:
    Original Install Date: 2019-07-24, 8:58:19 AM
    I recall doing and OEM reset in March or May that is, shortly after 2019-03-01
    I think July 24 is when the last major Windows 10 update was done.

    This only shows the last major update.

    Anytime there is a feature release for Windows 10 it sets the”install date” to that date.

    Works great for me!

    Original Install Date: 18/10/2019, 16:12:55

    That’s the day I installed Windows 10.

  • Back in the day of Windows “Service Packs”, this info was helpful to know when you first installed Windows on the system.

    Since the Windows 10 era, however, every new edition of Windows 10 is really a full reinstall and will reset that date. Basically, anything that causes you to end up with a “Windows.old” folder, will reset that date to the day of that specific install.

    But the monthly patches won’t change that date, which is good.
