PC tip to quickly find Microsoft Windows Version
The best way to quickly find out the version of Microsoft Windows Operating System on your PC is to type the command “winver” (without commas, i.e. “) in the Run box.
After you have typed “winver” (short command standing for “windows version”) in the “Run” Open box and pressed Enter, you will see a Box titled “About Windows”. This “About Windows” box will give you the essential information of the version of Microsoft Windows OS installed on your PC plus Build, Service Pack and the Year when the Operating system was coded. In Windows Vista, you may get a similar screen as shown next: So winver command can do the following for you quickly: i. Tell you the name of the Microsoft operating system installed on your computer. Example: Windows Vista Business in this case. ii. Build of the operating system, 6002 over here. iii. Service Pack, i.e. 2 in this case. iv. Year of copyright of the operating system. v. Physical memory or RAM available to the Windows. Using this command can be typically helpful when you are taking telephonic support from a technical guy and want to tell these details to him/her on being asked (usually needed).
If you are completely new to the Microsoft Windows and do not know how to get “Run” command window, then click on Start (usually located at bottom left of the Microsoft Windows Screen) and then on “Run”.
Hope that this computer tip will help Microsoft Windows computer users in knowing the version and other major details of the Microsoft Windows System Software on their PC.
