Starting with Windows Vista, Microsoft had started a rating tool for the system hardware for a Windows computer. This tool runs on Windows after you have installed the operating system for the very first time. This tool can also be invoked by device driver software after installation of the graphics or other hardware drivers.
On Windows, it checks many different aspects of the hardware and gives it a score. The score includes ratings for the CPU, GPU, RAM and the HDD or SSD. The maximum score can be 10 and the minimum can be 0. The lowest of these sub-score is displayed as the experience index for the Windows system.
Starting with Windows 10, the operating system does not pay much attention to this experience index anymore. It does not even show up in the System Properties window. If you want to calculate and view the experience index for a Windows 11 system, then you can use a third-party program like ExperienceIndexOK.
It is a small portable program that can run the WinSAT tool for you. WinSAT is Windows system assessment tool and run various tests on your PC. These tests check for the performance of the processors, graphics, graphics for gaming, memory, storage drives etc.
It is this WinSAT tool that creates the experience index file somewhere in the C:\Windows folder. You can run WinSAT tool yourself, but gathering the data from the XML file is not easy. Using the ExperienceIndexOK program, we can read this data from the XML file. This program displays this experience index data much in the same way as was originally displayed by Windows in the system properties window.
This is an easy way to not only calculate the experience index but also view the experience index data for your Windows 11 PC. The data can also be exported to a file. ExperienceIndexOK also allows you to capture the screenshot of the window and share it with other people over social networks.
