# Display the Operating System name in Java

Java 8Object Oriented ProgrammingProgramming

Use the System.getProperty() method in Java to get the Operating System name.

It’s syntax is −

String getProperty(String key)

Above, the key is the name of the system property. Since, we want the OS name, therefore we will add the key as −

os.name

## Example

Live Demo

public class Demo {
public static void main(String[] args) {
System.out.print("Operating System: ");
System.out.println(System.getProperty("os.name"));
}
}
