Find Windows Experience Index in Windows 10 Spring Creators Update

Starting in Windows 8.1, Microsoft removed the Windows Experience Index (WEI) feature. Earlier, it could be found in System Properties, but it is not present there any more. In Windows 10 Spring Creators Update version 1803, the Games folder has been also removed. Here are a few alternative methods you can use to find your Windows Experience Index value in Windows 10 Spring Creators Update.

Prior to Windows 10 Spring Creators Update, you cloud use the hidden Games folder to quickly find the value of Windows Experience Index. The procedure is covered in detail in the following article:

Unfortunately, this simple trick doesn't work in Windows 10 Spring Creators Update. However, there are alternative solutions.

To find Windows Experience Index in Windows 10 Spring Creators Update, do the following:

  1. Open a new PowerShell window.
  2. Type or copy-paste the following command:
    Get-CimInstance Win32_WinSat
  3. See the line WinSPRLevel. This is your WEI index. The cmdlet also reports your CPU score, Memory score and other WEI values. Windows 10 WEI PowerShell Correct Values

If the cmdlet reports zero values for WEI, you should try to run WinSAT from an elevated command prompt. For example, you can get something like this:
