How many types of Windows 7 available?

There are two types which are 32-bit and 64-bit versions.

Which version should I use?

It depends on your Processor compatibilities (CPU), those two types are referring to the way a computer’s processor handles information. The 64-bit version of Windows handles large amounts of random access memory (RAM) more effectively than a 32-bit system.
So if your computer processor is 32-bit you cannot install the 64-bit Windows 7 on it and vice versa.

  • Clicking the Start menu button, then click Control Panel.

  • Under System, you can view the system type.

If you’re currently using the Windows XP on your computer, follow the below steps:

  • Click Start, and then click Run.
  • Type winmsd.exe, and then click OK.

In the navigation pane, locate Processor under Item in the details pane. And check its value:

  • If the value that corresponds to Processor starts with x86, the computer is running a 32-bit version of Windows.
