UVK Help - System Info
You can access UVK's System Info module by clicking System Info, in the Home Page.
The System info section shows software and hardware information which can be very useful especially if you're going to reinstall windows, if you need to diagnose a performance or hardware problem, or if you want to keep detailed information about the PC for future use. The information can be exported to a comprehensive html file.
The section consists of a list view control and four buttons. The list contains several groups, and each group contains information specific to one or several hardware devices or software products. To avoid cluttering the list with useless details, we try to display only information that can really be useful in a computer repair basis.
The Home button, at the top right of the window closes this section and takes you back to the Home section.
The Help button, just to the left of the Home button, brings you to this page.
The Clear Disk Info button launches our new tool Clear Disk Info, which gives you health iand other nfromation about your storage devices.
The Export to HTML file button allows you to easily export all the information in the list to a comprehensive HTML file. More info here.
And finally, you can right-click any items in the list to quickly copy their text to the clipboard or directly google them.
The list view control allows multi-selection. To select several items, hold the Ctrl key while pressing the desired items. To select all items in a group, just press the corresponding group header.
After selecting one or more items, you can copy their text to the clipboard by right-clicking the list and pressing Copy selected.
