How to check its version of Windows 10?


screenshot_38-500x309 How to check its version of Windows 10? Windows 10 is the 1st Windows to be frequently updated feature side free Unlike previous versions of Windows, such as Windows 7 or Windows 8. Previously for versions prior to Windows 10, there was what was called the "Services Pack", which gave for example Windows 7 SP1. But there were quite a few, only 2 to 3 by Windows, which made it easy to find in the versions! With Windows 10 that is frequently updated, they decided to change their way of doing and naming these feature updates (in most cases it's not a generality), but also to assign them a version number.   For example:

  • "Anniversary Update" is version 1607 of Windows 10 in August 2016
  • "Creators Update" is version 1703 of Windows 10 in April 2017
  • "Fall Creators Update" is version 1709 of Windows 10 in October 2017
  • "October 2018 Update" is version 1809 of Windows 10 in October 2018 and November 2018 and probably December 2018 (by the time I write, this update brings many problems and its output is interrupted and postponed every time)

These feature updates obviously bring new features, but also changes, whether at the design level, option level, or even feature withdrawals! And that's why, you often see in the articles a clarification about what version of Windows 10 it is exactly. But you have to know that it is not because the updates of Windows 10 are done automatically, that you have them all! Windows Update is not perfect. I happened to see on several PCs of Windows 10 being said to update after Windows Update not being at all! And this, while no blocking of updates has been made, or anything else in particular. And when the update was done manually, it was carried out without any worries and subsequently allowed to have the other updates!   That's why it's interesting to know which version is your Windows 10 and for this, know how to know the version of its Windows 10.
