Is there any way to check one's PC to see if they have a Intel Atom 'Clover Trail' processor which won't be supported my Microsoft anymore?

The snapshot tells you the processor and processor family.

 

It's not exactly accurate to say that it's not supported.  There will just be no additional feature updates to Windows 10 beyond Version 1607 for this family of processor (unless Intel steps up and says it's going to extend support for the firmware, etc.).  Microsoft has already announced that Windows 10 users on that family of processor will continue to receive security updates through January 2023, the end of support date for Windows 8.1, since any Windows 10 machines with that processor started out with Windows 8/8.1.

Thank you.

 

I assume if it's a 6th generation Skylake it can't also be a Atom Clover Trail?

Since 6th generation Skylake wasn't introduced until 2015 and Clover Trail was 2012, and you have an Intel Core (but not sure what number) processor, which is not an Atom processor, the answer to your question is yes.

 

These two architectures have nothing in common other than coming from Intel (at least as far as I'm concerned - someone will surely argue that they do).
