Computer System Information

Windows Computer System InformationThere is an area on your computer whether you have Windows 7 or Windows 10 called “System Information”. This is a special little area inside of Windows that lists out important information about your computer. It even tells you how well your computer’s performance rates.

That’s all fine and dandy but it is kind of useless if you don’t know how to get to it. So I’m going to cover a couple of different ways to bring that System Information up for you to look at.

How To Get To Windows System Information

The most common way to get to your Windows computer system information is to right click on top of the “Computer” menu selection in the start menu. In the context menu that pops up just left click on Properties and your System Information will appear.

A different way to bring up the Windows Computer System Information window may be a lot easier for many people but it is a lot less known. Using a particular key sequence the System Information will pop up without having to do anything else. Pressing the “Windows Key”, holding it down and then pressing the “Pause” key at the same time the information magically appears.

What Information Does System Information Give Me

So why is the System Information window so convenient? It displays a lot of useful and important information.

  • Windows Edition and Service Pack
  • System Manufacturer
  • System Model (Usually)
  • Rating
  • Processor (Type and Speed)
  • Installed Memory
  • System Type (32bit or 64bit)
  • Windows Activation Status

As you can see whether you are buying a new game or software and need to know whether your computer will run it or whether a company you are applying with is asking what kind of computer you have at home. You can find all of the important information you need in one convenient location just by opening up the System Information screen.
