This isn’t a big step by step guide for something, just a quick one liner for anyone to find the version of Windows in Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows Server 2003 & Windows Server 2008.

Winver is the command that one can run to find the version of Windows.

 1. Click Start – RUN (In Windows Vista/Server 2008, Start – Search RUN), type “winver” and press enter.

 This should show the “About Windows”  with Windows Version and Build.

Windows Version in Windows Vista

 Windows Vista - Windows Version

Windows Version in Windows Server 2008

Windows Server 2008 - Winver

Hope this comes handy!!!
