Free program to track app/program usage?

Is there a program that lets you track how long you've used programs/apps on Windows 10? (I want to track my usage not someone else's ).

That sounds like RescueTime. I don't use it but a couple of my users do. As I recall it's a bit Executive-y, like mind mapping and "focus on goals" and such.

This, then, but I don't know anyone who has used it.

It's working fantastically thanks! I mainly wanted it to track video game usage for non-Steam games.
