Most, if not all, computers sold at Big Box stores have Windows 8.1 64-bit preinstalled. But to make sure you are running Windows 8.1 64-bit or 32-bit then follow these steps.
Determining if Windows 8.1 is 64-bit or 32-bit
- Open the Settings Charm. Refer to “Opening the Settings Charms – Windows 8.1”.
- Tap or Click Change PC Settings.
- Select PC and Device.
- Select PC Info.
- Look at System Type. This will tell you if you are running Windows 8.1 64-bit or Windows 8.1 32-bit.
