Often Techies feel to have the Built number of OS they are using. Like I felt. Few OS versions have this info at the Desktop screen like Windows 7 Beta, RC had but few don‟t have .

To find out these details and much more info like product edition, build number and revision number for Windows Vista, Windows Server 2008,Windows 7 that is installed,

follow these steps:

 Open Registry Editor by typing Regedit in Start Search, then hit Enter.

 Go to the following registry key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion
