Hi!

I apppreciate that this seems a very silly question.

I was just wondering is there anything within the fabric of your p.c. (the p.c. equivalent of a clothes label) which specifically states its operating system.

I have Windows and Windows Office 2007, but as I said, is there anything that clearly stipulates on my hard-drive which operating system I am using.

Cheers.

Good morning laptap and welcome to BC.


From your Start Menu, place your cursor over My Computer (or if you are running Windows7, it might just say Computer) and then Right-Click on that, and from that menu, select Properties and the screen that pops up should have a bunch of information that you're looking for, Operating System, as well as some specs of your laptop and/or desktop.


Let me know if that helps.

Thanks a lot Winderland. I now know for certain the identity of my computer :-)
