If you are a Windows user, it’s important to know which version of Windows you are running. This knowledge can help you troubleshoot any technical issues or decide if your computer needs an upgrade. In this blog post, we will discuss how to tell what Windows version you have in a few simple steps. Learn How to Tell What Windows I Have?
How to Tell What Windows I Have?
- The first step is to open the Start menu by clicking on the Windows logo in the bottom left corner of the screen. Once that is open, you can click on “Settings” and then “System”. From there, click on “About” and you should see information about your device and its specs such as processor type, RAM size, OS version, etc. The OS version will be listed at the top under “Windows Specifications” and should be something like Windows 10 Home or Pro.
- Alternatively, you can also press the Windows key + R on your keyboard at the same time to open the Run window. Type “winver” into this window and hit Enter. This will bring up a pop-up window that shows your current OS version along with some other details about your system such as its build number and release date.
- If these methods don’t work for you or if they don’t provide enough information about what kind of system you’re running, there’s another option: download a third-party system information tool such as CPU-Z or Speccy (both are free software). These tools provide comprehensive information about your computer’s hardware components including processor type, RAM size, graphics card model number etc., as well as detailed information about what version of Windows you’re running.
Knowing what kind of operating system (OS) your computer is running is essential for troubleshooting any problems that may arise or deciding whether it’s time for an upgrade. Hopefully this blog post gave you some insight into how to easily determine what Windows version you have installed on your machine so that you can make informed decisions about maintenance and upgrades going forward!
