  • NO need to search, just use Run (from the Start menu) > msinfo32
  • Whatever to type on Start is a search automatically. And yes, it's great that the search box execute commands similar to the Run command that why the reference on the steps. Thanks,
  • You can type "msinfo32" into the Start Menu's search or open Start->Run and type "msinfo32." I think searching for msinfo32 is basically just cutting out a step. This same method works from Windows 7's Start Menu search function.
  • If you have Run as a shortcut on your desktop it is the same number of steps...!
  • win+r, msinfo32, enter.
    or
    win, msinfo32, enter
    or
    win+x, y.
  • No need to do any of that. Click start and type 'sys' click on it
  • Definitely everything you ever wanted to know about Windows but were afraid to ask.
  • Full specs? What about Serial number? (Pardon me if it is not displayed on VMWARE example pics?
    Cmd wimic csproduct
  • I think the command you're looking is: wmic bios get serialnumber Thanks,
  • I'v always liked Belarc Advisor which shows hardware, network inventory, missing Microsoft hotfixes, anti-virus status, and security benchmarks.  It's also free.
  • Speccy
  • I always use dxdiag to get a glimpse at the specs. CPU, RAM and GPU. Not as much information, but easier to use.
  • CPU-Z for me.
  • Just run 'dxdiag' in search bar, it will show you each and every thing about your laptop or desktop..
  • If U want more details, U can use WMI Query !!
  • Good to know!👌☺
  • BTW, It's a good idea to select word wrap the first time you run and open notepad.
    I see is not in the insert
  • Definitely WinKey+R; msinfo32 :)
  • really the easiest and clearest way is to open the mixed reality app which will tell you all your specs
  • the sole fact that you have 4 different options to see the specs of your machine in Windows is pathetic at best. Windows is such a hot mess
  • msinfo32 is antique and needs to be refined badly...!
  • I just use Speccy.
  • my way, win+x, y.
