Find Windows Version with OS Detect

Finding the version of the operating system can be the most annoying or the easiest thing in the world, depending on whether you have the correct information and the right tools. For example, you can use the instructions we have given on one of our previous articles to find the Windows version and build : how to check Windows version and build. Similarly, you can use another tool that we have discussed about in the past to find out if your Windows is 32-bit or 64-bit using 64-bit Checker.

And now there is another simple to use tool called OS Detect that also promises to show you the Windows version along with the 32-bit or 64-bit instruction set support. It is a portable program and hence does not require any sort of installation. You can just launch the OS Detect program and it will display the Windows version in large fonts. It also displays the 32-bit or 64-bit version of the operating system.

OS Detect

Unlike some of the other tools like 64-bit Checker, it does not give you options to save the version information to plain text files, CSV files, HTML files or some other files. Similarly, it does not give you any detailed information like the build number of the operating system. But OS Detect can be very easy to understand for the very new and inexperienced Windows users.

Conclusion: OS Detect can display the some basic information about the Windows version. It can be useful when you want to download a software and are not sure which version would be compatible for your Windows PC.
