  • It would appear that you have Windows 10. To determine exactly which version of Windows is installed, open a Run window (press Windows Logo key+R), type winver and press Enter. You can additionally click on Microsoft Software License Terms.

  • Hi E.A. Tollison.

    You can easily find the Windows version you're running: either hit the Win + Pause keys to open the System properties window or hit the Win + R keys, type cmd and then type winver and hit ENTER.

    Bye.
