How to check if Windows 10 version 1903, May 2019 Update, is installed on your PC

May 2019 Update, version 1903, is the next major refresh of Windows 10, but is it already installed on your PC? Here's how to find out.

Checking Windows 10 version 1903, April 2019 Update, is installed

UPDATED 5/22: Windows 10 version 1903, May 2019 update, is the first semi-annual feature update available starting May 21, 2019, with an array of new features and improvements. However, as a result of upgrades being incremental, and they’re simply known as “Windows 10,” it’s difficult to know which version your device is running.

Although you won’t find an May 2019 update label anywhere, each release of Windows 10 receives a specific version number. In this case, the first major refresh for 2019 is known as “version 1903,” which also indicates the year and month of the feature update development completion. As an example, the Windows 10 October 2018 Update uses “version 1809,” and the April 2018 Update uses “version 1803.”

If you’re not sure which version of Windows 10 is installed on your computer, you can quickly check using the winver command and About settings page.

In this guide, you’ll learn the steps to know if you have the Windows 10 May 2019 update installed on your computer.

If the “About Windows” dialog shows “Version 1903” along with “OS Build 18362.116,” (or a later build number) then the Windows 10 May 2019 update is installed on your desktop, laptop, or tablet.

Checking version 1903 using Settings

To check if your computer is running the Windows 10 May 2019 Update, version 1903, using the Settings app, use these steps:

  1. Open Settings.

  2. Click on System.

  3. Click on About.

Once you’re in the “About” page, under “Version”, you should see the 1903 number, and under “OS Build”, the number should be 18362.116 or later.

Typically, Windows 10 will never install a new version without notifying you. In addition, after the upgrade, during the first loggin, Microsoft Edge will open and display a welcome message to the new version.
