    Hello and welcome to the forum.
    If you are at the windows 8 start screen, simply type
    computer
    right click the resultant icon and at the bottom choose properties
    that should tell you the edition as well as the architecture.
    Back at the windows 8 start screen, you can always type
    cmd
    and then hit enter or select the icon with your mouse
    At the command prompt you can then type winver and hit enter
    That should produce the version information 6.2 build(9200)

    If it only says "Windows 8", then you have the basic version.

    Hi there, you could also try RUN then type 'msinfo32' in the box then hit ENTER. That should give you full information about your whole computer and what version of Windows you have. Cheers
