How To Determine Computer 32 Bit or 64 Bit


Very often you have to decide whether your computer system is 32-bit or 64-bit. Most computers currently are 32-bit machines and their processors can handle 32 bits of data at a time. On a Windows operating system, you can determine whether your computer is 32-bit or 64-bit very easily.

How To Determine:

1. Open the System Information

Click on Start menu -> Programs -> Accessories -> System Tools -> System Information

2. Look in the System Summary

After opening System Information, it will show the "System Summary". The System Information tool will display detailed information about your Windows operating system under the System Summary section. System Summary is an overview of your computer and operating system.

3. Look for the System Type Item

On the right hand side of the window you will see a list of items. Look for the item called "System Type". The value of this item will tell you whether your computer is 32-bit or 64-bit: 
x86-based PC: It’s a 32-bit computer.
x64-based PC: It’s a 64-bit computer.

Happy Computing...............:)
