Determine times when Win 10 has blue screened

What utilities or methods can I use to determine what days and times a Windows 10 Pro OS has blue screened or crashed?

I would like to be able to quickly determine these days and times so I can then examine the event logs around these times to determine what might have caused these Blue Screens or crash issues.

Normally these errors show up in Reliability History. This is easier.

Look there now (not later please) and see if there are Critical Errors that occurred roughly when the crashes occurred, or implicate a process that broke.

Actual Restarts are in the Event Viewer. Look in the Windows section (Application and System) for errors at the approximate time of the crashes.

if you look in the windows\minidumps folder, all the dmp dfiles have a name with corresponding date/time
eg :  012718-14171-01.dmp = 27jan2018 14 hrs17

When you have a crash, take note of the Stop code and Error message so you can report them here.

Also as nobus suggested, provide .dmp files related to the crash.

Blue screen crashes are commonly caused by driver or hardware issues.  Using the above information gives you a way to identify which software, driver or hardware part is faulting.

The easiest tool is Nirsoft Blue Screen View which I supplied to you in another question. I highly suggest that as others (especially win debug) are more complicated.
