What is the difference between Windows 10 Versions, Editions, and Builds?
Before we go into showing you what build your windows 10 is using, let me quickly explain or differentiate for you what Versions, Editions and Builds means in windows 10.
- Windows versions is all about the major windows release.We usually use these to refer to the “friendly name” of the Windows OS(operating system) on the pc in question, such as Windows 8 or Windows 7. However, a version number is a bit more specific than this. For example, what we know as Windows 7 was actually Windows version 6.1. With Windows 10, Microsoft releases a new version roughly twice each year.
- Builds are a more specific number that show exactly which compiled version of Windows your computer has. You normally don’t need to know this, but it’s the most exact representation of what operating system is on your computer.
- Windows editions are a bit different. These are flavors of the operating system that Microsoft releases for different markets. Examples include Windows 10 Home and Windows 10 Pro, which offer different feature sets. See our explanation of every Windows 10 version for more details.
