When you press the Windows+BREAK keys, the System Properties dialog should be displayed.

If this doesn't happen on your Windows 2000, Windows XP, Windows Server 2003, or greater computer, your keyboard may have separate keys for the pauseĀ  andĀ  break functions, instead of both functions being on the same key.

If your keyboard has a PAUSE key, use Windows+PAUSE to open the System Properties dialog.
