How to view the Windows Experience Index in Windows 10

Remember the Windows Experience Index? The Windows Experience Index was a quick way for Windows users to understand the overall performance of their computer and any immediate difficulties.

Microsoft has removed the graphical version of the Windows Experience Index (WEI) in Windows 8.1. But the underlying tool, the Windows System Assessment Tool, is still alive. You can easily access the old performance scores of your machine.

Here's how to test the Windows Experience Index in Windows 10.

Step 1: Run WinSAT to create the Windows Experience Index
The Windows System Assessment Tool (WinSAT) remains hidden in Windows 10. You can use WinSAT to create a Windows experience index for the processor, graphics card, memory speed, and more.

To do this type open a line as a and enter the following command: winsat formal

If you do not know how to open a command prompt, type the word "Command Prompt" in the search, in the results right click on "Command Prompt - Application" and select "Run with administrator privileges".

Step 2: Wait for the process to complete. When done, you can find the XML file in C: \ Windows \ Performance \ WinSAT \ DataStore.

Browse a set of files that contain the date you performed the test. Open the XML file that looks like "[test date] Formal.Assessment (Recent) .WinSAT.xml".

When prompted, select your web browser to view the XML file. Your browser will make the XML data readable. The Windows Experience Index is located near the top of the file.

Alternatively you can use Windows PowerShell to read the results. It works about the same and gives you a much more readable read.

Type powerhell in the Start menu search bar, right-click Windows PowerShell, and select Run as administrator. When PowerShell opens, enter the following command: Get-CimInstance Win32_WinSat

The overall Windows experience index is listed with WinSPRLevel.

There are other ways to view the third-party Windows 10 Experience Index on the Internet, such as the Winaero WEI, or even stand-alone solutions that create and present their own benchmarks, such as SiSoftware Sandra or UserBenchmark.

Is the Windows Experience Index useful and reliable?
For some reason Microsoft does not advertise the Windows 10 Experience Index. Also, Microsoft has removed the Windows Experience Index from the Microsoft game board. As you understand, you will not find your score unless you do all of the above.

The Windows Experience Index was a commercial failure since it is essentially aimed at users who do not have much experience with computer hardware.

It wasn't particularly useful anyway, even to the users who discovered it. The Best Technology Site in Greecefgns
