To get System Information, use Windows+R, then type "msinfo32" into the "Open" area and press Enter. The "System Summary" tab that you open already has a lot more information than the Settings app did. You can click through each section to see what's available.
If you're having trouble finding the system summary, try opening Control Panel. Under System and Security, there should be an option for System Properties. From here, you can access various details about your PC, such as how much free space is left on your hard drive, or what process is using up all of your memory.
The System Information tool that comes with Windows can offer most facts, but it's not particularly user-friendly. Nonetheless, give it a shot first. Enter "msinfo32" by pressing Windows Key + R. You may also use the search bar to type "system information" or click Windows Key + S. The System Information window will appear.
Here are the various pieces of information you can find in the System Information window:
System Summary: Provides a general overview of your PC hardware.
Windows Version: Shows you what version of Windows you're running. Check for updates by clicking on the Get Windows 10 button. Also worth mentioning is the Build Number - this is a unique number that identifies your version of Windows. It's usually located in the bottom right corner of your Windows login screen (if you see any dots instead, then you need to reset your password).
OS Language: Shows you what language you have installed on your PC. If you don't know much English, this might be useful information to know before installing new programs on your machine.
User Account Control Settings: Displays whether or not you've enabled User Account Control (UAC) on your PC. By default, this setting is set to On. However, some applications require Administrator privileges to work - if an application isn't working as expected, try changing this setting to disable UAC and see if that fixes the problem.
By clicking on the bottom left-hand corner of your screen, you may access the Start menu. If you see a search text box, click it and put "System Information" into it. If you don't see a search text field, simply begin entering "system" or "system information." Select "System Information" from the "Programs" menu. The System Properties window will open. Here you can view your product name and version number as well as some other useful information about your computer.

If you want to view your system information at any time, you can use the Control Panel to do so. Click Start, then click Control Panel. In the search box at the top of the screen, type "system". The System Properties page will appear. Click the System Summary tab. Here you can see all kinds of information about your computer, such as its model, manufacturer, amount of memory, available space, installed programs, etc.
Some people like to keep track of their systems' health using log files. Windows keeps many different types of information stored in log files. For example, it may record the activities of each user account, or it may keep notes of software installation attempts called "blacklists." There are also log files that record the activity of devices connected to your computer. A common example is the Disk Log file which records the activity of every disk drive attached to your computer.
By default, most system information log files are kept in the %SystemRoot%\System32\LogFiles folder.
The About tab in Settings is the best location to get basic information about your machine. Navigate to Start > Settings > System > About. This information may also be seen by hitting the Windows key + X > System. The Windows logo will appear on the screen with more details.
