It has always been best practice, and the safest practice, to provide Windows 10 Version and Build numbers when asking any question about Windows 10. There have been significant differences between Versions on occasion, and during the rollout period of a given Feature Update (and the one for Version 2004 has just started) it is impossible to know if someone has it yet or is still on 1909 (or, heaven forbid, something earlier).

Assistants need to know what Version and Build are in use to give accurate advice.

Getting Windows 10 Version and Build Numbers

You use the winver command in all versions of Windows to get the Version number, and in the case of Windows 10, the Build number with dot extension which is what lets you know if you have the very latest updates applied.

Method 1
1. Hit the Windows Key, immediately type winver, then hit Enter.
2. You will be presented with the About Windows dialog containing Version and Build.

Method 2
1. Hit Windows Key+R
2. In the Open edit box, type winver, then hit Enter.
3. You will be presented with the About Windows dialog containing Version and Build.

Method 3 (specific to Windows 10, no use of winver command)

1. Open Windows 10 Settings, System, About Pane (which is the last pane at the bottom of the list of panes)
2. Search for Windows specifications.
3. Immediately beneath that heading you will be provided Edition (e.g., Home, Pro), Version number, Installed on date, and Build number.
