See the features of the Windows 10 PC from the settings

One of the easiest and most immediate ways to see the features of the Windows 10 PC is to travel to the settings system, in order to access the window containing the information on your computer. I recommend that you opt for this solution especially if you simply need to know some basic specifications, such as those of the processor or RAM or the edition of Windows 10 you have installed.



To begin with, open the menu Home (l'icona della pennant Windows located in the lower left corner of the screen), presses the button depicting the wheel which is placed in the sidebar on the left and, in the window that opens, click on the item System. At this point, scroll through the options on the sidebar on the left and press the item Informazioni su (marked with the symbol of i).

As you can see, in the window that opened, there are some of the main features of your PC. Specifically, in the section Device specifications, some hardware characteristics of the machine in your possession are listed, such as the type of processor and RAM memory installed, the type of system architecture and so on; in the section Windows specificationsinstead, the various features concerning the Windows edition installed on your PC are listed.

See Windows 10 PC features from Command Prompt

Another way to view PC tech specs on Windows 10 is to use the Command Prompt. If you have never used this famous Windows utility before, know that using it is really simple: just type the correct command (based on the type of operation you want to perform), press Submit sulla tastiera and il gioco è fatto.



To bring up the Command Prompt, type the term "Command Prompt"Or"cmd" in Cortana's search bar which is placed in the lower left corner of the screen, right click on the first search result that is found, select the item Run as administrator from the menu that opens and then confirm the operation by pressing the button Yes.

Once you are in front of the main Command Prompt window, type the command systeminfo and by Submit. As you can see, after executing the command, a lot of information about the characteristics of your PC is listed: from the main hardware specifications of the machine to the details regarding the version of the software installed, passing through information regarding the architecture and much more.

If you want to know the details of your computer's motherboard, instead, write the command wmic baseboard list / format: list and then come on Submit on the keyboard. The characteristics of the motherboard will all be lined up: the card identifier (Product), his name (Name), the serial number of the mainboard (SerialNumber) and the name of the manufacturer (Manufacturer).

See Windows 10 PC features from Device Manager

Do you need to see the complete list of all the hardware components installed on your PC and are you wondering if there is a way to do this? Yes, of course! In this case, in fact, just go to the window Device management Windows and locate the component you want to consider. Said like this, it might seem a bit too complex to do, but I guarantee you that it is not at all.


For starters, right click on the button Home Windows and, in the context menu that will open, select the item Device management, so as to recall the homonymous window. Now, in the window Device management, you will be shown the complete list of hardware devices installed on your PC. To know the characteristics of one of them, all you have to do is expand the relative hardware category to which it belongs by double-clicking on its name or by pressing the button (>) placed in correspondence with it.


If, for example, you want to know the characteristics of your computer's network card, double-click on the entry Network cards or press the button (>) which is located in correspondence with the same, on the left. By double clicking on the component name taken into consideration, then, you will be able to view its properties and get additional information about it, such as its operating status.

When examining the properties of the various devices, be careful not to disable or uninstall any of them (unless you know where to put your hands): otherwise you risk seriously compromising the correct functioning of the machine. Then don't tell me I didn't warn you!

To proceed, open the window Run pressing at the same time Win + R on the keyboard, give the command msinfo32 and then presses the button OK.
