How To View Your Computer's Full Specs

Identifying and understanding your computer's specifications can be extremely handy, particularly If you want to know whether your PC Is compatible with certain applications, or simply wish to upgrade It's hardware components. Thankfully, Windows has a couple of built-In tools that provide In depth Information pertaining to your computer. In this tutorial, I will show you how to access these tools and view the details thereafter.

Although there are third-party tools such as Speccy, that display your PC's specs with a click of the mouse, the very same (If not more) can be achieved without the need to pay a single penny, nor download any software. The Windows built-In tools I'm referring to Is Msinfo (also known as Msinfo32), and DxDiag (short for DirectX Diagnostic Tool).

The former provides users with an In depth view of software, system and hardware components, and although the latter Is predominantly used for diagnostic purposes, It also displays an array of Information about your computer's Inner workings.

I will demonstrate how to access both these tools with Incredible ease. So let's get this tutorial started.

Step One:
Firstly, let's checkout Msinfo. Open the Run menu, enter msinfo32.exe and hit OK.

Step Two:
The System Information window will now execute. I've clicked on the System Summary tab, and there's a comprehensive list of my computer's specifications.

Step Three:
I've now selected the Display option, and everything relative to that Is listed. You can clearly see that every Intricate element Is displayed. There's also many other options on the left pane.

Step Four:
Now let's visit DxDiag by entering that very name In the Run menu, and then hitting OK as shown below:

Last Step:
As you can see, quite a bit of system Information Is displayed. More Info can be viewed In the Display, Sound and Input tabs.

Final Thoughts:
No doubt, you can appreciate the caliber of these tools and their capacity In providing detailed Information about your computer. It's way beyond the scope of this article to demonstrate each and every option, so when you get a moment, checkout both tools In detail. You will not be disappointed!
