Check if computer is running 32-bit or 64-bit Windows OS

If you want to find out if your computer is running a 32 bit or 64 bit version of Windows Operating system, then here is an easy way to determine it.

To check 32-bit or 64-bit version in Windows 7 & Vista:

1. Open Start menu, right-click on Computer, and then open its Properties.

2. Under System, view the System type entry.

System type - 32 or 64 bit?

To check 32-bit or 64-bit version in Windows XP:

1. Click Start button, right-click My Computer, and then open its Properties.

  • If you don’t see "x64 Edition" listed, then you’re running the 32-bit version.

  • If "x64 Edition" is listed under System, you’re running the 64-bit version.

Hope this tip comes handy to find if your Windows supports a x86 or x64 application. 😀
