My Windows is 32-bit or 64-bit Operating System?
Posted by Prashant on June 17, 2010
While installing a application to my machine, I come up to check my Windows bit count. So here is the quick post on how to find the Windows Bit Count.
The machine I was working was with Windows XP operating system and the steps are:
Go to Start >> Programs >> Accessories >> System Tools >> System Information.
Start >> Run >> type “winmsd.exe” >> OK
Now under “System Summery” find an item named “System type”. If its value is x86-based then the CPU is 32-bit or if it’s value is x64-based then CPU is 64-bit (the image below is of a 32-bit machine).
