A wise man once said, half knowledge is dangerous. And this literally applies to every aspect of human life in the so-called technological era. You won’t screw up your mom’s medicines or a concoct of your baby’s food, right? So, you also don’t want to be the dim-witted Mr. A who owns the most expensive electronics but has no idea what it is or what it does? Either you received an amazing laptop or a desktop as a gift or want to help an elderly know their PC, finding the product model is not that difficult. While laptop manufacturers mention the product’s model with a label at the bottom or on the battery compartment, people using assembled PCs don’t have any such help. This step-by-step guide will show you how to find your computer’s model if it’s running Windows 10.
How to find your Computer’s Model on Windows 10
Both these methods will guide you to know more about your PC and of course, the product model.
Method 1 – Command Prompt
Press the Start menu and search for Command Prompt. Right-click on the Command Prompt at the search results and select Run as administrator.
Once the Administrator: Command Prompt is live on your screen, type this command wmic csproduct get name to get the serial number of your PC. Press Enter. You’ll see that your device has pulled up some information about your product’s name.
If it’s the serial number you are looking for, type this command wmic bios get serialnumber and press Enter.
Now, if you want to find out both, the model number and the serial number of your PC, type this command wmic csproduct get name, identifyingnumber and press Enter.
We say, save the time and enter the third command, which will display the product and serial information.
Method 2 – System Information
System Information, as the name implies, gives you all the information (albeit, a bit overwhelming) about your system. There are more two ways to open the System Information tool and we’ll cover them.
Press Windows Logo + R to open the Run option. Or else, press Windows Logo + X to open the Quick Access Menu and click on Run. Type msinfo32 in the search bar and press OK.
Or, press the Windows button on your keyboard and search for System Information.
When the System Information tool is opened, click on the very first option System Summary. It contains all the information related to your PC, including OS Name, system name, BIOS version, system model, etc.
These were some relatively easy steps to find your computer’s model running the Windows 10.
