How To Check If Windows 10 Update Is Installed Or Not

Every OS update has its unique version and build. Consequently, the easiest way to find out if the next Windows 10 Update is installed is to check the OS Version rather than examine your OS for changes and new features. And here is how.

If you want to check it like a pro, perform the following steps:

  1. Press Win+R key combination on your keyboard.
  2. Type winver in the field.
  3. Hit Enter or click OK

Once you’ve done this, the following window should show up. There you will find all information about the current OS Version and Build.
