"which version of Windows am I using?"

  p;3 22:07 30 Jul 05

forum members who wish to help you will need to know this;
if you do not know and obviously need to find out, one way you can do this is to watch your computer monitor screan as the system boots/loads up in normal mode ; you should then see the basic version shown on your monitor screan ; there are a variety of Windows versions and it will depend on your version as to what advise or guidance you may need to sort your particular issues ; that is why one of the basic questions, statements , requested by forum members helping you will ask or need to know; different windows versions behave /run in different ways, and not all have the same or similar capabilities;

for instance; there is windows 95 (rather old version), windows 98, windows 98se( my present version) , and so on;the most recent I believe is Windows XP; and each runs in a slightly different way and can go wrong in different ways; hense the need to know which version you are running :))

Or, Left click on Start then Right click on My Computer and left click on Properties, the general tab, which opens first will tell you which version you have.

look at system information,
( pro/acc/system/tools) it has everything clearly detailed and you can print it out

Windows 98 will just say Windows 98

Winodws 98 will say Windows 98 Second Edition.

Start Menu, Run.., type

winver and hit enter

what does it say?
