If you contact the customer support for some software, the first thing they ask is what kind of computer you are running, your installed Windows version, your system memory etc. All this information is hidden in deeply buried settings in the Control Panel. But now you can use the portable freeware application called System Spec to view your system information at the click of a button.
You can download System Spec from Alex Nolan’s (the developer of this software) website. The download is available as a portable application, so you do not have to install anything on your PC. All you have to do is extract the contents of the downloaded ZIP archive to a folder and run SysSpec.exe from there. The program shows up with all the system information listed in a single window.
You can use the buttons in the toolbar to view detailed information about individual items in your computer. For example, you can click on the CPU Info in the toolbar to view details about the installed processor in your motherboard. There are some other tools in the toolbars like CPU Meters which show the current CPU load and clock frequency for your processor.
You can access many useful Windows programs and features in the Control Panel through the menubar of the System Spec tool. You can also save the hardware information of your PC in form of CSV or HTML files. To do this, you have to select File → Export to HTML from the menubar of System Spec. In addition, you can also print this information directly to your connected printer.
System Spec is a very small standalone portable application which can be used to have a look at your PC information. It lists the specifications of your Windows PC without consuming much of your system memory. It displays the information in a very compact format avoiding any bloated and unnecessary information.
