Re: Getting your Windows Version

Antony Stone

As another aside to the NVDA developers, I assume that NVDA is able to
discover the Windows version for itself, so it might be useful to include that
information as well in the NVDA - Help - About details?

I'll start by saying I know that the part about getting the Windows version

As a result, it will often be critical when asking questions for the
Windows 10 Version, and sometimes build, numbers to be supplied when they
are asked. To get your Windows 10 Version you can do one of two things:

1. Hit the Windows Key and immediately type winver , then hit enter. You
will be presented with the About Windows dialog which contains the line
with your version and build.

2. Hit WinKey+R, type in winver in the Open box, then hit enter. You'll
get the dialog noted above. This method should also work in earlier
versions of Windows as well.

If you need your NVDA version, NVDA+N,H,A will bring up the About dialog.

As an aside to the NVDA developers who may be reading, it might be helpful
to make NVDA read its own version number in the more conventional "dot"
format, e.g., 2019 dot 1 dot 1. Right now it reads this as though it were
a date. It was really odd to have this come out as Version January first
