The Windows 10 Creators Update is now rolling out to compatible devices with a slew of new features and changes. The only caveat is that because new versions of the OS are now incremental updates, and they’re labeled “Windows 10”, it’s hard to tell which version you’re running.
Although you won’t find the “Creators Update” reference anywhere, Microsoft assigns an internal version number to each release of Windows 10. For example, the Windows 10 Creators update has a version number of 1703, and the Anniversary Update is version 1607.
