Determine edition of Microsoft Windows


The System control panel in Windows can tell you which edition of Windows (including whether 32 or 64 bit) you are running. The screenshots are from Windows 7 but other editions of Windows are similar.

  1. Bring up a Run window by holding down the Windows key (usually next to Alt) and then pressing the R key.
  2. In the text box type: control system

  3. Click OK. The window that appears has all the information you need.

  4. Close the System Control Panel.
