To check your operating system, turn on your computer and look for information on your operating system as the computer boots up. You can also find this information in your computer settings. For example, if you have a PC you can look at "View System Information" in "My Computer," which is accessible from the Start menu.

If you are unsure of the browser version you are using, launch the browser and select Help from the menu bar. Next, select About Browser (the browser name and the exact wording of the selection will vary) and a window will open with your browser name and version.
