- Windows 10 setup
Just want to emphasize that this article is designed for those users who have a minimum of knowledge in terms of using a PC and even basic questions such as: "How do I know the processor on a laptop with Windows 10?" opportunities to give a quick and clear answer. That is why, we decided not just to touch on this topic, but to analyze it in several directions, thereby opening up the possibility for everyone, without exception, to choose exactly the option for action that would be more acceptable for them.
The article will be divided into three independent examples with actions, but each of the presented examples will end up repeating the previous one, so choose for yourself the method that you consider more practical in the modern realities of using your device.
This method is very simple and requires a minimum of actions: the mouse cursor hovers over the Start menu (the icon is located in the lower left corner of the monitor screen) and a right-click is performed → you will see the "Context Menu" appear in which you will need to move the mouse cursor to “Device Manager” item and go to this section → pay attention to the fact that in the window with the name “Device Manager”, you must definitely switch to the “Process” and it is here that you can already find the processor itself and all its cores.
Please note that if the processor is multi-core, then when you open it in the "Device Manager", you will see some almost identical names for "processors", do not be scared, since the Processor itself will be the first in the list, and after it, it will be placed in a column "Kernels".
A similar way to the previous one, but only in this case, you need to use the "Task Manager", which is called up by pressing the keyboard keys "Ctrl + Alt + Delete" → note that you must definitely go to the "Performance" tab → you just need to make sure that in the new window the "CPU" subsection is open → move your gaze to the upper right of the window and you will immediately see the name of the processor used.
A way that is slightly different from the previous ones, since here, you will not immediately go to specific system sections, but you will have to go some way to them: be sure to go to the "Settings" section → click on "System" → find in column "About the system" → move your gaze to the central part of the window, to the section where it says "Device Features", since that is where the name of your processor takes place.
Of course, not all answers to the question are painted above: "How do I know the processor in a laptop with Windows 10?" But even in spite of this, three examples of actions will be enough for you to choose from them exactly one that will help you or your friends answer a seemingly difficult question...
