How To Find If Your Computer Is Running A 32-bit Or 64-bit Windows

Difference between 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Windows: The terms 32-bit and 64-bit refer to the way a computer's processor (also called a CPU), handles information.

The 64-bit version of Windows handles large amounts of random access memory (RAM) more effectively than a 32-bit system. But the question is, How can one find if the computer is running a 32-bit or a 64-bit version of Windows?
To find out if your computer is running a 32-bit or 64-bit version of Windows in Windows 7 or Windows Vista, do the following:
  1. Open System by clicking the Start button, right-clicking Computer, and then clicking Properties.
  2. Under System, you can view the system type.
If your computer is running Windows XP, do the following:
  1. Click Start.
  2. Right-click My Computer, and then click Properties.
    • If you don't see "x64 Edition" listed, then you're running the 32-bit version of Windows XP.
    • If "x64 Edition" is listed under System, you're running the 64-bit version of Windows XP.
