You also can open the the cmd prompt with elevated priveleges

Hit the Windows key in the search type: cmd and press "ctrl+shift+enter"

Type: systeminfo

Locate the "System Type:"  Either it would state X86-based PC = 32bit OS or x64-based PC = 64bit OS.

This is what you'll see if you right-click on Computer and select Properties (Note that it will explicitly say either 32-bit or 64-bit Operating System):
