    What version of Win8 do I have


    I have an original Windows 8 cd set, one 32 bit and one 64 bit in the original sleeve. It is not marked as home or pro anywhere even on the cd itself. Is there a safe site (MS) where I could put in the key and find out what it is.

    There are 3 editions of Windows 8 that will run on a PC.
    Windows 8
    Windows 8 Pro
    Windows 8 Enterprise

    Unless explicitly marked as a Pro or Enterprise edition it will be Windows 8. This is the basic or home edition.

    This excellent tool here,

    Showkey - Windows 10 Forums

    Has a feature to check product keys and tell you what they are for.

    I just tried it on my old W8 Pro key and it correctly identified it.
