How to Save important system information in a text file
When you need advice in forums after you encounter problems with your own computer, you are often asked about your system configuration, like the exact Windows version and so on.
Before you look up information in the settings with much efforts, you can have Windows
display important system details automatically and route them to a text file that is at hand at all times.
Right-click in the taskbar on the Windows icon and in the menu, select “Command Prompt (Admin)“.
Type the command “systeminfo > c:\systeminfos.txt“. You can also set another
path if needed.
The screen remains blank, but you should now see a new text file on the “C:\” drive. Type only “systeminfo” and the information will be displayed on the screen.
Other Ways to View System Information
