Measure Boot Time in Windows 10/8/7 with Windows Boot Timer

Have you ever measured your PC’s boot time? I guess, not! Well, here’s a simple utility called Windows Boot Timer that may interest you. Windows Boot time utility is a useful boot timer utility that loads itself into memory when you start your computer and measures total system boot time.

After all system processes have loaded, the utility removes itself from the system memory and displays the total boot time. No installation is required. All you need to do is double-click on the executable & upon restart; it will display the time taken by your computer to load windows. It does not count the time taken to go through BIOS or BIOS boot up a password.

Sadly, the program without your consent takes you to the developer’s site for feedback and product endorsements.

    Well, that didn’t work. Downloaded Boot Timer, ran it, let it boot my pc and after reboot I got nothing. What did I do wrong? Tried it twice with same result.

  8. Run it as admin and see if that helps.
