NOTE : Go here to find out Windows Experience Index on Windows 10.

We all know that Windows Experience Index (WEI) is the scale that rates a computer between 1.1 to 9.9 after evaluating performance of key hardware components such as the CPU, disk drive, and graphics card. This feature uses WEI engine to calculate the performance of device running Windows. Unfortunately, the WEI feature has been removed by Microsoft in Windows 8.1 due to less usage, but the good thing is that WEI engine remained embedded in the current stable release, Windows 8.1. So if we have the UI program linked with this WEI engine, we would be able to obtain WEI scores for the Windows 8.1 devices as well.
