Estimated Reading Time: < 1 minute

Hello again have you ever wondered how long it took to execute a powershell script or command?

With a few lines of code we can retrieve that information from your history.

We can pull from history the last executed command and set it as a variable.

$command = Get-History -Count 1 

Using builtin property’s EndExecutionTime and StartExecutionTime we can determine the execution time.


Now subtract EndExecution from StartExecutionTime.

$command.EndExecutionTime – $command.StartExecutionTime


Now go forth and execute.
