In this Windows 8 32 or 64-bit System tutorial, we are going to find out if our Windows 32-bit or 64-bit system using Windows 8.
Actually I always wondered and asked myself is my Windows 8 32 or 64-bit system, and I write this to be my own library so when next time I asked myself, I can check this page.
I often needed this info because I wanted to install a program that has many downloads options for different Windows 8 32 or 64-bit system.
When you download randomly without checking the requirement of the program (if you’re interested, you can check out how I install Octopress on Windows 8 on this tutorial), not only that you probably won’t be able to install it, but you’ll likely have problems once you got the program running on your computer.
If you wonder the same thing, I hope this will help you.
Steps to Find Out if Your Windows 8 32 or 64-bit
I am using Windows 8.1. But I guess it should work with any Windows 8 versions or even all previous versions, also you might want to check this page in Microsoft site.
I would appreciate if you notify me if this doesn’t work at your end. Therefore, if it doesn’t work, just leave a comment, and I will get back at you as soon as possible.
1. First step is is you need to right click the “Windows 8” icon on the bottom left of your screen. Then select “System“.
2. In the System preference, you can find any information about your computer like memory, your OS serial key, and others, but the most important is that the information next to the “System Type“.
Mine has 32-bit Operating system, x64-based processor, and this might confusing you, but the most important is that the 32-bit Operating System, this yellow highlighted one.
If your computer, it shows that it has 64-bit Operating System then yours has 64-bit Operating System.
So that’s it, how you find if your Windows 8 has 32 or 64-bit Operating System.
