How to get Serial Number in Windows

There a few ways to get the serial number of a computer:

1. In the case of laptops, you will usually find the serial number on a back-label.

2. You can see it in BIOS (basic input/output system)

3. You can get it from Windows OS.

How to get the Serial Number in Windows:

1. Right-click on the Start button and click on the Windows PowerShell entry (or Command Prompt if you are using an older version of Windows).

Right-click StartMenu

The Windows PowerShell window will open:

Windows PowerShell

2. Here you can use two commands. The first one will work both on Command Prompt and on PowerShell:

wmic bios get serialnumber

C:\Users\PH>wmic bios get serialnumber
SerialNumber
9E195841H


C:\Users\PH>

The second command will work only on PowerShell:

Get-WmiObject win32_bios | Format-List SerialNumber

PS C:\Users\PH> Get-WmiObject win32_bios | Format-List SerialNumber

SerialNumber : 9E195841H

PS C:\Users\PH>
