Meaning/Usage: Asking from when

Explanation: This one is a little difficult to explain.  It is usually used when you are surprised by someone's action or words.  When you know a person does not usually do something, you can start with "since when."  This would indicate to the person that you know that they usually don't do this, but want to know when they started doing it.
