What Version of Windows 10 Do You Have?

By Andy Rathbone

Windows 10 comes in several versions. Not sure exactly what version of Windows lives on your computer? Windows doesn’t really shout it out, but a little probing forces it to reveal that information. Specifically, you need to look at the System window.

Follow this step to see what version of Windows is installed:

  1. Right‐click the Start button and choose System from the pop‐up menu.
    Chances are good that you’re running Windows 10 Home or Professional version.

If you’re running an earlier version of Windows, follow these steps:

  1. From the Desktop, click the Start button.
  2. Right‐click the menu item named either Computer or My Computer and choose Properties from the pop‐up menu.
    When the System Properties window appears, read the information to discover your version of Windows, and whether it’s 32‐or 64‐bit.

If your desktop doesn’t have a Start button, you’re running Windows 8.
