How To Get Windows Experience Index Score Back

Get the Windows Experience Index Score Back in Windows 8.1

A lot of users were annoyed that the Windows Experience Index Score was removed with the release of Windows 8.1. Despite the new version of Windows overall being a tremendous improvement over earlier versions, the fact was that a lot of people relied on the WEI. For what? I don’t know. It’s a rather arbitrary number that tells you a lot less than you really want to know about your PC’s capabilities. That said, if you do miss checking your Windows Experience Index Score and comparing it against friends’ scores, you’re in luck.

The fine folks over at ChrisPC have released a tool that brings back the testing utility and can show you the score in a GUI that’s reminiscent of the original in almost every way. The app will show you an ad when you try to close it, but it’s bound to its own frame and all you have to do is hit the “X” in the top right corner to get rid of it, so it shouldn’t present a significant problem. Get the tool here.
