I already have R and R studio installed. What do I need to do to see if I have the right version?

Hi David, hope you are good. I just down loaded the R and I clicked for a short cut and fast means of accessing. Howeveer I have 2 Icons on my desk top,one Ri386.... and the other Rx64 4.1.2... Does it appear they are for 64 and 32 bits? I also observe that the R is for windows and they said 4.1 .Does it mean windows 4. since I am using Windows 10 does it have any effect.

What am I to do next please Thanks and have a good day

Hi there! Received some error messages about using a non-UTF8 locale and ASCII characters. It is directing me to "R for Mac OS X FAQ section 9." Where do I find this?

Working on the R Console looks good so far.
