Microsoft SharePoint Services are a wide ranging group of products that are offered to help a work group host websites where coworkers can work on shared documents, gain access to stored information, host blogs and a number of other Web-based applications. Occasionally it may be necessary to download updates or service packs to get the most out of your collection of services, and you should know what version of SharePoint Services you are using. There are a few different methods you can use to determine this, and one of them will be sure to give you the information you need.
Go to your Windows Desktop, click on the Windows Start button, and then select "Control Panel."
Click on the "Add or Remove Programs" icon and click to place a check mark in the check box that is labeled "Show Updates." The version of SharePoint will be displayed.
Try going again to "Control Panel," selecting "Add or Remove Programs," and this time clicking on your Windows SharePoint program. Select "Click here for support" and you may see the version displayed.
Go to "Program and Features" within "Control Panel" and select "Views." From there, click on "Choose Details," and then click on "Version," and finally "OK."
