Windows 10 Anniversary Update

| December 14, 2016

Windows 10 Anniversary UpdateIn August of 2016, Microsoft released a free update to Windows 10, named the Anniversary Update. This update makes several improvements to the original Windows 10 release. If you haven’t already applied this update to your Windows system, I recommend you install it.

If you’re not sure which version of Windows 10 you’re running, you can check with these easy steps:

  1. Click on the Start button in the bottom left corner.
  2. If you see your user account picture and name at the top left, Settings written out, and File Explorer written out as shown in the image below, then you have the original release of Windows 10.
  3. If you see your user account picture at the bottom of the menu (without your name), and the Settings icon at the bottom of the menu (without the text showing), then you have the Anniversary update of Windows 10.
