Saving system information with Speccy

You can save your current Speccy profile as a plain text (.TXT) file. This can be useful if you want a record in human-readable format.

To save the current Speccy profile in plain text:

  1. In Speccy, click File and then click Save as Text file.
  2. In the Save As dialog box, select a folder and change the file name if necessary.
  3. Click Save.

Alternately, you can export information about your system in XML format. XML is similar to HTML, but is more structured.

The XML hierarchy of Speccy is as follows:

  • <mainsection>
    • <data>
  • <section>
    • <data>
  • ...and other sections representing subsections as necessary.

To save the system information in XML:

  1. In Speccy, click File and then click Save as XML.
  2. In the Save As dialog box, specify a location and file name. By default, Speccy uses the computer name and the .XML extension. Click OK.

You can view the resulting XML file in any XML viewer, as well as Internet Explorer.

Finally, if you want a hard copy of your current Speccy profile, you can print it to any printer recognized by your Windows system. Each Speccy section (for example, CPU) will print on a separate page.

To print the current Speccy profile to a printer:

  1. In Speccy, click File, and then click Print.
  2. Choose the printer and modify any settings as necessary, and then click OK.

NOTE: Please check that the 'Page Range' option is set the way you want first - if set to 'All', it will print the entire Speccy report, which may well take over a hundred pages. If you only want to print the current section (such as CPU, RAM, or Motherboard), please select "Current Page" only. You may first want to use 'Microsoft Print to PDF' or a similar 'print to file' printer driver to save the proposed print to a file to see how many pages would be needed.
