Worklet: Windows Reboot History

This worklet will return the recent reboot history for the machine(s) it’s run against.

As written it returns the 5 most recent reboots, but you can change that number to your liking.

It is also written with what I felt were the most important fields to see, but you can change the last Select-Object statement to include additional fields listed in the first Select-Object statement.

This worklet is designed to be run manually. If you schedule it, change the evaluation to “Exit 1”.
