As you might be knowing, the Windows Experience Index (WEI) was removed from Windows 8.1. Microsoft left the WEI engine in the OS, but the UI was deleted from This PC/Computer properties. Recently, our good friends at IntoWindows reviewed the ChrisPC WEI tool. I looked at this tool but was disappointed that it didn't show the actual tests and assessments being done accurately. So I decided to code a better alternative myself with a nice looking, familiar UI. With WPF, it was a quite simple task.
So, here is my new freeware portable app, Winaero WEI Tool:
Latest version is 126.96.36.199, see the change log below.
It brings back the genuine Windows Experience Index and features the following abilities:
- Calculation and re-calculation of assessments and scores.
- The exact genuine Windows Experience Index look and feel.
- The real, actual tests and assessments progress and status.
- The ability to save a screenshot of your Windows Experience Index as a PNG file.
- The ability to take a screenshot of your Windows Experience Index and upload it to ImgUr with one click!
- The ability to save your WEI table to an HTML file!
- Bonus: The background of your WEI score follows the window frame color for a cool appearance.
