How do I find out what version of XP a computer is using?

Is there a quick About this Mac equivalent for XP?






I am that Masked Man.

Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

I've been to the edge of the map, and there be monsters.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody counts or nobody counts.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.

Quick, no.

Start Menu --> Control Panel

If you are in Category View, select Performance and Maintenance.
Then click on the System icon.

If you are in Classic View, click on the System icon.

The default "General" tab in the System control panel will display the current version of the OS.

Almost as quick as on a Mac...

Right-click on the My Computer icon, then select Properties > General tab.
