Windows 10 includes a new version of Microsoft Edge based on the Chromium engine, which means that the browser now receives updates more frequently independently of the operating system, similar to other browsers like Chrome and Firefox.

Although the browser periodically checks and downloads updates to make sure you have the latest version, sometimes, you may need to check the version of Microsoft Edge installed on your computer to make sure you have the most recent version or troubleshoot a problem.
