Windows System Specifications
There are several key factors that help determine how your computer operates. These factors are often referred to as system specifications, or “specs”—and any software or hardware that you install will list the system specs that your computer needs to meet. These are referred to as system requirements.
In this article, we’re going to show you how to find your system specs, so that you can be sure your computer meets the requirements for the applications and/or devices you are installing. The following steps are performed on a Windows 10 computer, but the process for accessing this information is the same for Windows 7 and 8 as well.
Hard Drive Space
1) Open Windows File Explorer by clicking the folder icon on your taskbar.
2) Select This PC or Computer in the left-hand side of the window. You will see one or the other, depending on your operating system—but not both.
3) On the right-hand side of the window, find your C drive. You should see some indication, again, depending on your operating system, of how much space you have available. For instance, in the picture below, I have 253 GB of free space.
To find out how much RAM you have, your processor speed, and your Windows version, follow these steps.
1) Right-click on Computer or This PC and click on “Properties.”
2) The window on the right will display the information you need.
