** How to Check a PC Operating System **

Community Q&A

An operating system (OS) is software that manages the interaction between
hardware resources and the programs or applications you use on a computer.
Most PCs have a version of the Windows operating system on them but
Macintosh, Linux and UNIX are other popular operating systems. Besides
learning the name of your operating system, such as whether you have
Windows 7, you can find other useful information about your system. If you
are worried about taxing your computer's central processing unit (CPU), for
example, you may be able to check your operating system's bit version. A
64-bit version of Windows can process higher amounts of random access
memory (RAM) better than a 32-bit version. Follow these methods to check a
PC operating system.
