    How to get Windows version information on your PC

    To find specific version information on the Windows OS on your PC, in XP go to Start > Run and type (without the quotes) "winver.exe" and click OK. In Windows 7, click Start, and in the search box type (without the quotes) "winver". This will bring winver.exe to the top of the search pane; click on it. On the Windows 8 StartScreen, begin typing (without the quotes) "winver", and winver.exe will appear in the search box; click on it.

    You will then see a dialog box with everything you need to know (with the exception of 32-bit/64-bit) about the version of Windows installed on your PC, including a live link to the "End-User License Agreement/Microsoft Software License Terms", which is stored locally on your PC. You can click on that link to read the licensing agreement specific to your installed version of Windows.

    Create a fresh drive image before making system changes, in case you need to start over!
