    Bring back Windows Experience Index!

    Thank you very much for your feedback and commitment to make Windows better.
    The Windows Experience Index was dropped from Windows 8.1 due to little usage by users. However, you can try the WEI Tool mentioned here to evaluate your PC rating if you like:

    Best regards,

    So with all the features people are requesting this is one that will not make it back into Windows 10 without the 3rd party tool which Microsoft has pointed out. This is the first item I have heard back on.

    I think this is a lame excuse. The function was very much used by the users - at least as far as I can tell.

    Out of curiosity, I ran the WEI when I first installed W7, but it's not a feature that I would miss in W10.

    I always thought it was a good easy way to see if things were going okay with a system,
    If thing's changed new driver/ hardware changed the refresh score would show and see if any good or bad happened :)

    If someone would ever ask a question about a game... not playing well then a wei score might help someone say yea it's your machine isn't up to snuff.

    It's really funny back when this came out in Vista, and then Win 7 it seemed that a good deal of folks couldn't figure out he need for it, and now that Microsoft has decided it to remove it, it is all of a sudden the greatest piece of information in the world for helping others get their sh** together when setting up a new system. . .whatever. . .

    Mike, You should eeeeaaase your way into 8.1. It is actually a nice system.

    For the WEI, there is always winsat. With winsat disk I got this result in W10:

    Disk Random 16.0 Read 173.00 MB/s 7.6
    Disk Sequential 64.0 Read 590.07 MB/s 8.2
    Disk Sequential 64.0 Write 128.56 MB/s 7.0
    Average Read Time with Sequential Writes 0.549 ms 7.9
    Latency: 95th Percentile 2.010 ms 7.7
    Latency: Maximum 17.730 ms 7.9
    Average Read Time with Random Writes 0.723 ms 8.5

    That's from a virtual machine though. Type winsat /? into cmd, then you know the options. But don't use winsat formal. That will keep you entertained for half an hour.

    I always thought it was tied to game ratings and what ever wei rated your system was what would play okay :/

    Nah, the WEI is just a performance rating of the various components in the system. It really only makes sense if you want to compare one system with another.. Of course if you get high ratings, you know that your system is a good performer.

    Run these 3 commands. Then you know everything about your system - except graphics.

    winsat disk (mine see above)
    winsat mem (mine is appr. 17500 MB/sec)
    winsat cpu -compression (mine is appr. 600 MB/sec)
