Windows 7: Notepad trick to get all your computer specs?

Notepad trick to get all your computer specs?

I remember being in this forum seeking some help from the community and one of the members had gave me a set of instructions, one of which included using the notepad I think? I had typed in something in the notepad, saved it with a specific name, and voilą, all my computer specs were in that notepad. I'm not entirely too sure if it's the notepad that you type this command in, but by this point whoever's reading this will either know or not know what I'm talking about.
"Could anybody tell me how to do that thing with the thing", is what I'm trying to say. Thanks in advance.

Run this from a Command Prompt:

systeminfo > %userprofile%\Desktop\SysSpecs.txt & notepad %userprofile%\Desktop\SysSpecs.txt

or run this from the Run box:

cmd /c systeminfo > %userprofile%\Desktop\SysSpecs.txt & notepad %userprofile%\Desktop\SysSpecs.txt

Both will load the output of the systeminfo command into notepad for you.

If you want more information, try this: System Info - See Your System Specs

Or you can google SIW, (system information windows). Very small program which gives you the whole rundown on what's on your comp......and it's free

Update: I just checked and it seems the developer no longer supports a freeware version...but...you can still get a free older version from other sites. I've been using an older version for yonks.

I'm afraid you're going to have to dumb it down even more for me.
I've tried typing into cmd what I thought was I was supposed to type in, apparently not.

You don't type this stuff. You just copy/paste it. And you need an elevated command prompt. The run box may be easier. Just press the WIN key plus the letter R

Slow computer with good specs
Hi all, My computer is starting to run slow these last few months. I have low framerate when playing Napoleon: Total War on semi-high, which I think with these specs I should be able to play with ease... I lag on 1080p Youtube videos, for Christ sake. :mad: I have formated it twice within that...
