If you’re currently evaluating Windows, you can keep an eye on the expiration date of the license to ensure functionality is not reduced when the trial period ends. Windows Forums member and Windows Guides writer, Stu, shares the following commands to check the license status of your copy of Windows:

  • slmgr /dli Current license information
  • slmgr /dlv Detailed information on the current license
  • slmgr /xpr Expiration date
