Find computer properties from command line (CMD)

System properties window can be opened by opening My computer properties. To launch this directly from windows command prompt we can use sysdm.cpl command. Just run this command from command window and you can see system properties window.

c:>sysdm.cpl

If you want to get computer properties in the command line itself then you can use systeminfo command. Just run this from command prompt. It dumps all the important information about your system.

On my Windows XP computer it prints the following details in the command prompt.
