On Windows 10, understanding the model number of your device can come in handy in many situations. For example, when you need to upgrade or replace a component (such as memory, hard drive, display, power supply, etc.), and you want to make sure you’re getting the correct part. If you’re troubleshooting a problem, and you need to contact technical support. Or to identify the device for inventory purposes.

Whatever the reason it might be, in addition to the sticker affixed to your laptop or desktop, Windows 10 includes several ways to find the model number as well as serial number (also known as “service tag”) of your device using System Information, Command Prompt, and PowerShell.
