As most long-time Windows users know, the System Information screen lists several important details about your PC’s Windows installation and its key hardware components.
Chances are you take a peek at it on a regular basis.
I’m also sure you probably know that right-clicking on the This PC desktop icon and then clicking “Properties” will open the System Info screen.
But there is an even faster way to launch this valuable tool, especially if you don’t keep the “This PC” icon sitting on your computer’s Desktop…
All you have to do is press the Windows+Pause key combination and the System Info screen will pop up right away. Give it a try!
This keyboard shortcut works in every currently supported version of Windows, including Windows 10.
By the way, you can also launch the System Info screen by typing the System into the Windows “Search” box.
Bonus tip: If you’d like a thorough rundown of all the hardware that’s installed in your PC, a free download called HWiNFO just might be what you’re looking for. You can read more about it right here.
