    right click on computer icon


    On windows 7 if I right-click on the computer icon, it gives me all kinds of information. It tells me the type of processor, amount of memory, amount of RAM, etc. That does not happen on windows 8. What can I do to get that information on 8?

    Hello Frank,

    When you right click on "Computer" (Windows 8) or "This PC" (Windows 8.1) and click/tap on Properties, it will open the System Control Panel window where you see this information at.

    Hope this helps.
