What version of Office am I using?

You know you have Microsoft Office installed but need to know more about your Office version. So here's how you can find things like which version, which service pack (SP), and which bit version (32- or 64-bit) you have installed.

If you know what version you are running but are looking for additional information like if you’re running 32-bit or 64-bit Office, you can skip to the appropriate section below.

If you're not sure what version you are running, please open an Office application (we use Word in our examples), and look at the UI to help determine what version you have.

If you see this UI after you open an Office application....
