Run File Explorer; right-click on "This PC"; and select Properties.

It will show you the version;  how much memory you have; and what CPU your system has.

... to run File Explorer, just click on the icon on the taskbar from the desktop;  or if you're on the Start screen just type "File Explorer" and then press enter.

See my 2nd note above.

Note that "This PC" is what it's called in Windows 8.1;  in Windows 8 it's still called "Computer".    So you just right-click on Computer, and select Properties.

You can try this keyboard shortcut to bring up your system properties: Press the Windows + Pause/Break keys simultaneously.

Otherwise, on the Start Screen you can just start typing System and it should bring up some results for you which you can use to determine what version of Windows you have. From the results you can click on PC info or System
