Finding out the Version of Windows O.S.

There might be times when you need to find the version of the O.S. you are running. It becomes even more Important since Microsoft has stopped releasing major versions of Windows. By this I mean just like Windows 10, there won’t be a Windows 11 or a Windows 12 for that matter. It would basically be Windows 10 with major updates coming every year. In order to keep track of the updates there are Version Updates. The last Major Update was the Windows Anniversary Update which was termed as Version 1607.

In order to find the O.S. Version, follow these steps-


  1. Do Windows + R, this would open up the Run Dialog Box.
  2. Type “winver
  3. This would launch another window listing the O.S. and it’s version.
