    Manually Exporting Score XML Files

    Alternate way to fetch Windows Experience Index score on Windows 10 is to run the WinSAT command manually. Start the command prompt (or PowerShell) and enter the following command:

    formal winsat

    This will run the Windows system evaluation tool and compare the processors, memory, 2D and 3D graphics and the speed of storage of your system. Sit down and let the test end. The time needed to reach it will depend on the speed of the components of your PC.

    After this is complete, you can find the results in
    C:\Windows\Performance\WinSAT\DataStore

    Find the XML file that contains the name "Formal Assessment". If you have never run the WinSAT command, the file will be called "Initial." File with the tag "Last."

    You can open Formal.Assessment XML files in your favorite web browser or XML viewer. The results do not have the correct format as a previous Windows experience index score, but you can still get relevant scores. Scroll a little towards the beginning of the XML file and look for the section called WinSPR.

    There, you will see the total score for each category, with "SystemScore" representing the overall index score of your Windows experience.
