Well in this discussion, I’m going to describe some important and easy ways to find the serial number of a laptop on Windows 10.
Top 3 ways to find your laptop serial number:
1. Find the serial number of the laptop by the device box
Our first step in checking the serial number of the laptop device is to check through the device box. Usually, the serial number is written on the battery jacket. Take out the battery from your laptop for a while and check the serial number there.
If you have bought a new laptop, you can also check your bill to find out, or if you have bought it from a friend or other person, the best way to check the serial number is to remove the battery.
2. Find the serial number of the laptop by Command Prompt
Command Prompt is another good way and fast way to check the device’s serial number as we also run ping network test by CMD prompt. Keep in mind that we are using Windows 10 command prompt here. Just follow the steps below:

When you type a command prompt in the search box, you will see several options, such as Open, as an Administration, and Open File Location. But you have to click on Run as administrator. Once you click, a black screen of the command prompt will appear. Now enter that code right in front of the last line and press Enter with your keyboard.
You will see the serial number of your laptop or PC on the next line of the prompt window. If you do not see a serial key or if there is an error, it means that the computer maker did not add the serial key to your device.
