How to See Windows Experience Index (WEI) Score in Windows 10
The Windows Experience Index was a handy benchmark score that users of Windows Vista through Windows 7 could use to gauge the performance of their PC.

The Windows Experience Index (WEI) uses Windows System Assessment Tool (WinSAT) to measure the capability of your PC's hardware and software configuration and expresses this measurement as a number called a base score. A higher base score generally means that your PC will perform better and faster than a PC with a lower base score, especially when performing more advanced and resource-intensive tasks.

The Windows Experience Index score could help users quickly identify if any particular components or capabilities of their PC were acting as a performance bottleneck.

WEI reports the score of key system components on a scale of 1.0 to 9.9.

This tutorial will show you how to get the Windows Experience Index (WEI) score in Windows 10 to help measure the capability of your PC without 3rd party programs.

Manually Run WinSAT to Generate XML Files

The first way to see your Windows Experience Index score in Windows 10 is to manually run the WinSAT command.  Launch the Command Prompt and enter the following command:


winsat formal

When it’s done, you can find the results in C:\Windows\Performance\WinSAT\DataStore. Find the XML file containing the name “Formal.Assessment.” If you’ve never run the WinSAT command, the file will be designated “Initial.” If it has been run before, however, the results of the current test will be in the file labeled “Recent.”

You can open the Formal.Assessment XML file in a web browser or your favorite XML viewer.  Just scroll down a little bit at the beginning of the XML file and find the section labeled WinSPR.

There, you’ll see the total score for each category, with “SystemScore” representing your overall Windows Experience Index score.
