Hey, kinda of a silly question, but when did version 1607 (14393.1480) come out approximately and is it considered the latest major update to Windows 10? I'm in a bit of a loss when it comes to problems relating to the updates on Windows 10, so I decided to tap into your knowledge. Basically, I'm trying to figure out whether this computer is running on a relatively current (2017) version of Windows 10 or whether it's some ancient release from a while back (Checking for updates is turned off deliberately on this PC).

Thank you! :)

Thanks! Strange, I didn't expect it to have a Wikipedia article, so I didn't check there.

All is clear now. Thank you again.:thumbup2:

If you have any question regarding which version you are currently running you can do the following to determine which version you are using.

 


Press the Windows key and the R key at the same time to open the Run box. Copy and paste or type in winver, then press Enter.  This will show the version of Windows 10 you have running.

Nice trick, thank you! I was looking more so and found out with the help of SleepyDude whether the version I am using is up to date in the grand scheme of Windows 10 updates, as I wasn't oriented in which version comes after which.:)

Also, just for reference, all of the Windows 10 main version numbers, e.g, 1511, 1607, and 1703, are the YYMM of their release (or close to it, some were delayed a couple of weeks)

 

This article on blog.juriba.com does the best job I've ever seen of describing the Windows 10 branching timeline both for the versions already out (and 1507 - the original release, is already out of support) and the next two upcoming ones.  This graphic they use:

 

Windows10BranchingTimeline7July2017.png?

 

 

is the best visual representation of the continuous roll out model of the ongoing versions of Windows 10 I've ever seen.   While Windows 10 "current version," whatever that version happens to be as time goes by, is supported until the end of life dates Microsoft has published for Windows 10, any version that has been superseded is not, and those versions are generally supported for approximately 18 months from date of release.   Since everyone is expected to be continuously updating to the latest version this is exactly what should be expected.

 

There is, however, already one exception to that rule with the recent announcement regarding Atom Cloverleaf (I think it's Cloverleaf, it may be Clover something else) processors.  Unless Intel releases some tweaks these will not be able to use any version of Windows 10 beyond Version 1607 (Anniversary Update).  Microsoft has already announced that they will continue to provide security updates on Version 1607 for those with these processors through the end of support date for Windows 8.1 in January 2023, since all of these machines running Windows 10 would have been part of the free upgrade process.  I fully expect to see this sort of thing occur again for relatively recent processors that had relatively short production lifespans that came out during the Windows 8/8.1 era.  We shall see.

Thank you for the extra information. Well, I don't really expect this medium-market laptop's internals to be supported forever, so it's not that big of a deal. I guess, when it becomes obsolete, it will either be sold (and a new device purchased) or will switch to Linux, but until then there is still time.:)
