Windows Management Instrumentation consists of a set of extensions to the Windows Driver Model that provides an operating system interface through which instrumented components provide information and notification. WMIC is the console version of Windows Management Instrumentation, available from Windows 2000 and onwards. 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 use the command line (CLI) to get computer-specific model information, and how to find computer serial numbers stated change to be filled by OEM. In this guide, you will learn how to find Computer Model and Serial Number in Windows.
Note: WMIC is deprecated in favor of PowerShell cmdlets which perform equivalent CIM operations, such as get-wmiobject. Using the built-in “wmic” command, let’s get the serial number associated with our device.
wmic bios get serialnumber
This command is not case sensitive
– Tip: You can use the command “wmic csproduct get name” to retrieve the local computer model.
Note: you can use this same command to get version e.g. wmic bios get version and as well as the description wmic bios get description.
– For other stuffs you can do with this command-use this command
wmic bios get /?
