How to Check Windows 10 Version from System Properties

Starting from the Device specifications section:

System type: Displays whether you are running a 64 bits (x64-based processor), or a 32 bits (x86-based processor). This information is very important when you need to install some applications. Some applications will have a different version for 64 bits 32 bits versions of Windows 10.

Processor: This displays the type and version of processor installed on your computer.

The Windows specification section also has some important Windows version information you may be interested in:

Edition: Displays the edition of your Windows 10. As shown in the image above, mine is Windows 10 Pro. For information about other editions click Windows 10 Editions and Versions (opens in a new window/tab).

Version: This is where you check Windows 10 version. The version number indicates the date the latest big release was made. Version number is usually in the YYMM format – YY is year, MM is release month. So my version number 1809 means I am running a version of Windows 10 released September 2018.

OS Build: The OS build indicates a minor release number. In-between big or major releases, Microsoft releases “minor” releases. For more information about Windows 10 versions and OS Build, read Windows 10 release information.
