Which Windows do I have? Windows 7, 8 or 10? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Is there any way to find out what Windows is the being used on my PC? Because I started out with Windows 7 when I first bought my PC. Since then I received (2) two FREE UPGRADES. UPGRADES I NEVER AUTHORIZED or WANTED. So now, On the start-up screen it has a BIG #8. After the beginning screen it claims to be Windows 10 ???

  • Hello!

    You can open a Command Prompt and type winver and it should tell you which version.

  • Hi E.A.Tollison, 

    When did the issue occur?

    As upgrading to Windows 10 for free is end in July 29, 2016, so we need to buy a vaild product key for Windows 10 if your device require to upgrade to Windows 10. 

    Moreover, Windows 8 and Windows 10 use a different display mode and a flat style, so it is significantly different from Windows 7.

    For checking the existing system version, we could go to press Windows key + R to get "Run" box, then type "winver" and press Enter key to check.

    "On the start-up screen it has a BIG #8. "

    No matter Windows 10 or Windows 8, it will not show a #8 at start up screen, would you upload the screen shot for detail information?

    Bests,
