How to Get a Computer's Serial Number With a Command Line Tool


There are plenty of occasions when you need the exact model number or serial number for your computer. Perhaps you need warranty information, drivers or hardware upgrades. Regardless of why you need the information you’ll typically find it on a sticker somewhere on your device. Unfortunately, those stickers can get damaged or torn right off leaving you in a tough spot. Luckily, there’s a command line tool you can use to get what you need.

After opening a command prompt, use the command “wmic csproduct get vendor,name,identifyingnumber“. If you’ve never run the command before you’ll have to wait while the WMI Console utility installs. The returned data will include your computer’s vendor, model and serial numbers. To find out what else you can do with the WMI Console, check out this post on Computer Hope.
