test windows procedures (XP+)

30 Aug 2018, 15:27

Hi guys,

I'd like to know if the two following procedures:
. WIN+R > 'winver' > Enter
. WIN+R > 'inetcpl.cpl'
are both reliable ways to, repectively:
- display in a GUI, using a native mean, the version of Windows.
- display, using a native mean, a user-friendly-GUI to set the IE internet settings.
i.e., primarily, of course, do work using the latest and earlier versions of Windows, starting from XP (XP+). Btw, I already tested them successfully using my laptop (Windows 8.1).
The aim is to be capable of giving simple instructions remotely to get the version of the OS and set internet settings.

Thanks much!

Both worked for me on Windows 7. Nice post. Cheers.

(So that leaves XP, Vista, (8.0), 10.)
