How to Check if Windows 10 Creators Update is Installed?

Windows 10 creators update started rolling out with the version 1703. Now, you need to check the currently installed version of Windows 10 on your PC.

  1. Click the Start button.
  2. Type About.
  3. Select ‘About your PC’ from the results.

You will be taken to the About section of Windows 10 settings app. Once here, take a look at the version mentioned under the Windows 10 Edition.

The screenshot above is captured from a PC running the creators update. That is evident from the version number 1703.

Your PC will also have the version number equal to 1703 or higher than that. If it does not, then your PC is not yet updated to the creators update. You can then manually check for updates to see if the creators update is rolling out for your PC.

PS: Do not manually update to the creators update. It has certain compatibility issues and you should only update to it when it is officially rolled out for your hardware by Microsoft.
