While Windows 11 promises to provide more features and an improved design, there are many features that at the time of writing is disabled.
Among them is the popular feature which allows you to check the RAM size, CPU type and other computer specification by simply right-clicking on the My PC icon and then choosing the Properties option.
While this feature is currently disabled in Windows 11, you can still check your computer’s full specification. There are at least 3 ways you can achieve this. And I will explain them to you below.
Checking your Computer’s Specification on Windows 11 through Settings.
- Right-click on the Windows 11 Start Menu which is in the taskbar, then click on the Settings option.
Alternatively, you can use the Windows + S keyboard keys as a shortcut.
- Click on System from the options in the left pane.
Then scroll down and click on About in the list of options in the right pane.
Once you do the steps above, both your computer’s and Windows 11 specification will be shown to you.
Check your Computer’s Specification on Windows 11 through Command Prompt.
- Type in Command Prompt or CMD into the Search box/icon in the Windows 11 taskbar.
- Right-click on the Command Prompt app result and then click on Run as administrator.
- When the Command Prompt app opens, type in systeminfo and hit the Enter button on your keyboard.
After step 3, your system specification will be displayed via the Command Prompt app. The specification you will get using this Command Prompt option is more comprehensive than when you use the Settings option above.
Note however, that you must be logged in as an admin and not as a guest user for you to use this command prompt option.
Check your System Specification on Windows 11 through DirectX Diagnostic Tool.
- From the app list in the Start Menu, expand the Windows System folder, and then click on the Run app icon.
Alternatively, hit the Windows + R keys on your keyboard.
- When the Run app opens, type in dxdiag and then hit the Enter key on your keyboard. Or click on the OK button on the Run app.
When the DirectX Diagnostic Tool open, it will display your Windows 11 computer specifications. However, it will separate the specifications into 4 tabs. These are:
- System: This tab shows the computer’s manufacturer, RAM, processor type and speed, Windows version, build and other info.
- Display: This tab shows you the graphic specifications of your PC including the manufacturer.
- Sound: Shows your speaker properties and it driver.
- Input: Shows what is currently connected to the computer.
