Generally you don’t have to worry about the version of your Windows 10 operating system as it doesn’t matter much in most cases. Since Windows is configured to update automatically by default, all the new features are auto-installed during the update process.

However, there might be instances where knowing the exact version of the operating system becomes important. For example, you may want to check compatibility for any newly released driver, know the availability of one or more features, etc.

It’s easy to find your Windows 10 version. Here’s how:

Step 1
Look for the command

Type WINVER in the Cortana search box. This displays the WINVER command under the Best match list. Depending on your Windows 10 version, the list may also be expanded to the right, displaying the other options related to the command.



Step 2
Run the command

Click WINVER from under the Best match list (or press Enter). This executes the command and opens the About Windows box. Here you can find information about your Windows, link to the license terms page, etc.

Step 3
Find the Windows 10 version

Check the information in the second line of the box. This line shows the version of Windows 10 you’re currently using (1809 in this example). The version number is also followed by the built number of the OS.
