I was trying to add an Office plugin to my system but I needed to know if I was running the 32 bit or 64 bit version of Office 2013. I assumed I could just click on “help” and then “about” to get my answer. That was kinda the answer but it took me forever to find it and I didn’t find any good answers when I searched for it. So I created this post to hopefully save you time and aggravation!

Question:
How do I tell if I have 32bit or 64 bit office 2013 installed?

Answer:
Click the series here:  File – Account – About Word.

That then brings up the window you need:

There is my answer! I am running 32 bit Office on my 64bit Windows 8.1 machine.
