Default a question about command prompt

is there a reason my command prompt can't recognize the systeminfo command?
it says that systeminfo is not recognized as an internal or external command...

Cause its Not a Command. I just tried many variations of it. Same Error.

What source says it is a command?

try msinfo32 (from a run window, not a prompt) waayyy easier to read, and you can navigate through way more info.
