On Windows 10, the ability to view a computer’s specs can come in handy in many situations. For example, it can be useful to determine if the device meets the minimum requirements to install a piece of software. If the computer is not working, and you have to troubleshoot a problem. Or, if you are noticing the device is getting slower over time, knowing the hardware specifications can help confirm whether you need to upgrade a component or it is time to replace the machine.
Whatever the reason it might be, Windows 10 has several ways to check the PC specs, such as processor, memory, motherboard, graphics card, Basic Input/Output System (BIOS) or Unified Extensible Firmware Interface (UEFI), device model number, drivers, updates details, and Windows version, using desktop applications or command-line tools. The only caveat is that depending on the method, the properties available could be slightly different.
In this Windows 10 guide, we will walk you through the steps to check your device’s full hardware and software specifications.
