VI  My Computer and Version Information

To check which version of an Operating System you are using, go to the desktop and right click on the 'My Computer' icon. Then choose Properties from the menu that pops up. The next window that appears will show you the name and version number of your Operating System.

For example, on our work system, we see the output shown in Figure 25.


Figure 25: Operating System Version Information

 


Version numbers are important because there can be changes in the same Operating System from the original release date.

Knowing your exact version number is helpful when adding updates or upgrades to new software or even a new Operating System.

The information here will contain the OS name and version. The registration number of the OS license and details of who the OS is registered to which also be displayed.

If your computer was built by a major manufacturer or is a brand name then you will see the information about that as well, as shown in Figure 26.


Figure 26: The Details on Version Information Screen

 


One major detail you will find here is the type of processor your Operating System is running on as well as the amount of RAM (memory) your computer has. These are details critical to the optimum performance of your Operating System.

8 Practice checking the OS version

So now we are all on the same page let's practice a bit of functionality.
