You may want quick access to the current system information of your own PC, for example, to get information about the current computer name in the network, the last system start time, information about the virtual memory, or the installed hotfixes. This is all relatively easy because since Windows XP and also in all subsequent Windows versions such as Windows 7, 8, and Windows 10 there is the often forgotten command "systeminfo".
