Get System Info using Command Prompt

How well do you know your system?
Do you know what is your OS’s version, System Model, System Type (x64 or x86), Processor(s) etc.?

It’s not so easy to get such infos…but you can get it easily using CMD (Command Prompt).

Go to “Run” (Windows Key + R) and type “cmd.exe” and hit “Enter“. This will pop-up “Command Prompt” window.
In Command Prompt, type “systeminfo” and hit “Enter“.
After sometime, you would see extended/advanced info of your System.

These infos are very useful, if you want, you can store it in a text file by entering the following line in Command Prompt:
systeminfo >D:\systeminfo.txt

In the above command, the “>” arrow tells Command Prompt to write the output to “systeminfo.txt” in the location “D:\” .?You can also replace the file’s name and the location where you want your file to be.

  1. Nice article. I often use the command prompt, or any DOS command I find useful at the moment whenever my OS goes berserk. Though most people think that DOS is more of a dinosaur at this space tech era, I still think it’s a powerful PC tool, especially if you know what you’re doing.

    It’s nice to know that guys like you still writes topics about this.
    Keep it up and more power!

  2. its very nice and useful article. u guys really doing nice work . keep it up. Can tell me about remote hacking . Or some useful batch file tips .
    I think DOS is the best tool of windows for hacking and controlling system.
    you r doing nice work keep it UP…

  3. Thanks in Advance. The Systeminfo batch file if great. Can I be able to email it instead of saving it in text? Or is there a way to change the names of the files if I use the same D:DRIVE for other systeminfo files?

    1. donno if it can be mailed…but yes you can store other systeminfo files on the same drive or any other drive just be using any other filename for the .txt which wasnt used be4 or else it will replace the old one..
      or u can also change the drive and use “C:” instead or use any other path as you like :)

  4. no need to go towards Command Prompt :P Beta farhan u can get these things within the GUI of Windows ;) “Do you know what is your OS?s version, System Model, System Type (x64 or x86), Processor(s) etc.?”
    Considering the omition on the “etc” u can know all of it by Right Clicking My Computer (win XP) or Computer ( Win Vista) and Properties ….
