    Where is my version of Windows 8?

    I'm a newbie here and to Win 8. Bought a laptop 2 months ago with Win 8 installed. Tried to find what version I have but got this
    "Version 6.2.9200 Build 9200". How do I find out my actual version?

    That's the actual version. Windows 8 is a commercial designation, not the actual version number.

    Here is a link that relates both: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/libr...(v=vs.85).aspx

    This one has more detail, but does not include Windows 8.1:

    Under Windows edition at Control Panel, System OR Settings, PC Info.

    Which Windows operating system am I running?

    Huh? Why? VER works perfectly well without a leading or a trailing space!
