Where/how does one find out the "version" of any particular software program. I've looled at properties of a program but no good. Its probably simple but this simpleton can do it.

Open the program.
At the top, click Help.
One of he options should be something like; About (the programs name)
Click that.

For example, Firefox would be; About Mozilla Firefox

You can also do a system "snapshot" using Belarc Advisor (www.belarc.com). Running Belarc Advison will produce a list of your operating system, all of the programs installed on your computer, all of the updates, security status, etc. It has versions and key codes for the installed programs, too. When I was managing a dozen computers, I liked to do a run every few months to keep a record of whether all machines were updated regularly, etc.

Go to your ADD/REMOVE in the Control Panel, the name and version of your programs will be there.
