We have many clients in Oxford and surrounding areas standardized on DELL hardware. I often need to find a DELL PC or laptop service tag while connected remotely. This can be done in DELL Command / Update or DELL Support Assitant software. However, I find it easier and quicker to do this in the command prompt.

Command Prompt

Just open the command prompt and type:
wmic bios get serialnumber

Another useful command will tell you computer model:
wmic csproduct get vendor, name, identifyingnumber

If you are in a Windows server domain environment, you can be fancy and do this over the network:
wmic /user:domain.local\domain-admin /node: bios get serialnumber

All this worked in the good old Windows XP days and still works today with Windows 11!
