How to View the Windows Experience Index on Windows 10?


The Windows operating system has a module of Windows System Assessment Tool (WinSAT). It is used to measure the performance and capabilities of the computer hardware and then report them a Windows Experience Index (WEI) score.

Score Ranges of Windows Experience Index
The subscores of WEI include processor, memory, 2D graphics, 3D graphics, and disk. You can get a score for each element. You can consider them as Windows 10 performance tests

The base score is equal to the lowest of the subscores and it is not an average of the subscores. The WEI scores have different ranges: they range from 1.0 to 5.9 for Windows Vista, 7.9 for Windows 7, and 9.9 for Windows 8/10.

Effects of Windows Experience Index
Through WET scores, you can check whether your computer hardware performance can meet the performance of the software requirements. For example, the Aero graphical user interface will be automatically enabled only when the system has a WEI score of 3 or higher.

Besides, WEI can tell you which part of your system can be expected to offer the greatest increase in performance after an upgrade. For example, if the memory has the lowest subscore, you can benefit more from a RAM upgrade than replacing/upgrading other elements.

Since the graphical user interface for WinSAT has been removed since Windows 8.1, you will not see the Windows 10 experience index in WEI. However, the command line WinSAT tool is still available. Also, there are some other available methods for you to perform a computer performance test Windows 10.

In the following parts, we will show you how to check the Windows experience index in different ways.
