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.

On the Start screen, type Computer, press and hold or right-click Computer, and then tap or click Properties.
Look under Windows edition for the version and edition of Windows that your PC is running.
Look under System for System type to see if you're running a 32-bit or 64-bit version of Windows.

Move your cursor to the right edge of the screen, tap Settings, and then tap Change PC settings.
(If you're using a mouse, point to the lower-right corner of the screen, move the mouse pointer up, click Settings, and then click Change PC settings.)
Tap or click PC and devices, and then tap or click PC info.

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
