    Here's Really easy way to get your system information -


    Hi there

    Here's a ridiculously quick and easy way to get the system info.

    1) create with notepad a file (any file) with just one line in it say the letter s and save it to your desktop as a type .nfo file.

    2) now double click it. You'll get a little panel about a corrupt file --simply click OK and the system info will be available.

    There might be a quick command for this information but I can't remember it - this works fine.


    Cheers

    Or just open start menu and start typing - 'system'. One of the results will be System information (desktop app)

    Hi there

    Thanks - I'd forgotten the command -- must be getting too old !! (or probably had to much beer yesterday !!).

    Cheers

    Thank you! This is helpful, I can open my file explorer via task manager but my desktop is just black with cursor
