The Processor / CPU can also be found easily in the Windows operating system, please follow instructions for the different Windows generations below.

Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 8.1 and Windows 10:

  1. Click the Windows Key on the keyboard or click the start icon at the bottom left of the computer screen. The icon does not say "Start" but rather has four colored (or white) rectangles arranged in a square.
  2. Type "processor" without the quotes.
