Windows - Determining 32-bit or 64-bit Versions
This document provides directions for determining if you have a 32-bit or 64-bit version of Windows.
- The first step varies depending on which version of Windows you are running:
Windows Vista and 7: Click on Start and then right-click on Computer. In the small menu that appears, click on Properties.
Windows 8 and 10: Move your cursor into the bottom left-hand corner of your screen until you see a small rectangular image appear. Right-click on this image to open the Windows Quick Access menu, then select System.
A new window will appear with some information about your computer. Next to the System type entry, you will see if you have a 32-bit or a 64-bit operating system.
