Description:

Wide support for Windows 10 Version 1809 (October 2018 Update/build 17763) will end today. Here, wide support refers to new updates for consumers on semi-annual channel (SAC), with business support ending six months later. Please update to Windows 10 Version 2004 or later. Note that even though support for this version ends, discussion surrounding this version will continue in the Win10 forum and its subgroups. Note: Windows 10 Version 1809 is a long-term servicing release for mission-critical devices. Complete support for this release will end in January 2029.


 

If anyone happens to still be on Version 1809, that would clearly indicate at this point that something is broken about Windows Update on that machine.  That being the case, if you are still on 1809, either go to the Windows 10 Download Page and use the Update Assistant by activating the Update Now button or download my tutorial, Doing a Windows 10 Repair Install or Feature Update Using the Windows 10 ISO file, and follow those directions.

Obtaining 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.

 

NoteThe information above is accurate as of its posting date, but subject to change if Microsoft revises Windows 10 to remove something.  This is highly unlikely.
