What Windows Version do I have? 32 or 64?

What Windows Version do I have 32 or 64bit Some of you apparently don’t know what Windows version they have, 32 or 64 bit. If you don’t know what Windows version you are running, you can get into a lot of trouble if you try to follow some tutorials on our site and you are using 64-bit system files on a 32-bit system.

Windows 7 32-bit or 64-bit?

Luckily, there are some easy ways to find out what Windows version you are running.

1. Step Open up the control panel:

Windows 7 Control Panel

2. Step Click on “System and Security”:

Windows 7 System and Security

3. Step Click on “System”:

Windows 7 System Information

4. Step Next, you will get some general system information about your system:

Windows 7 System Type 32 or 64

5. Step Check the system type and you will find out what Windows 7 version you are running, either a 32-bit operating system or a 64-bit operating system.

Personally, I am running a 64-bit operating system, because it’s more efficient when it comes to running optimized 64-bit applications:

Windows 7 64-bit version

So, now you know what Windows version you are running, 32 or 64-bit. When you download Windows 7 themes from this site, it often comes with an explorer.exe, but you can only use this explorer.exe on a 64-bit Windows version. I will be trying to get my hands on a 32-bit versiont too, so I can always provide both explorer.exe, but for now, please be careful what you try to replace.

If you need more information about your system, I recommend to display them right on your desktop. Displaying system information on your desktop can be a great advantage.
