How to use the command-line (CLI) to get computer-specific model information

The command line is a text interface for your computer. It’s a program that takes in commands, which it passes on to the computer’s operating system to run. From the command line, you can navigate through files and folders on your computer, just as you would with Windows Explorer on Windows. All critical subsystem settings are exposed through WMI, WMI treats data as objects that are in collections of one or more items. See this guide on how to find computer model, description, and serial number in the Windows environment, and how to find computer serial numbers stated change to be filled by OEM.

How to Open the Command Prompt in Windows 10: 
- Type "command prompt" into the Start menu to search for it.
- Press Win + R to open the Run box, then type "cmd" and hit Enter to open it.
- Press Win + X (or right-click the Start button) and choose Command Prompt from the menu.
