Ever wonder how can you find laptop serial number using command prompt???
Here is a quick command that you can use to find the Serial Number of your machine.
To find the serial number, open command prompt (cmd) and type the following command.
c:\>wmic bios get serialnumber
This will give you your machine’s serial number by pulling the information from BIOS. This is how it will look like.
