    Here the reg file to create the PaintDesktopVersion value if you want to use it

    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop]
    "PaintDesktopVersion"=dword:00000001

    I just right click on windows button and open a command prompt.

    First line tells you version. Oddly enough powershell does not.

    Mine does the same but doesn't give the Version number such as 1904 or 21H2.

    For quick information, I usually use this in a CMD Prompt . . .

    Code:
    
    PowerShell Get-ComputerInfo ^| select OsName, WindowsProductName, WindowsEditionId, WindowsVersion, OsVersion, OsBuildNumber, OsHardwareAbstractionLayer, CsSystemType, OsLocale

    These results are from an old machine I have.

    Code:
    
    OsName                     : Microsoft Windows 10 Pro
    WindowsProductName         : Windows 10 Pro
    WindowsEditionId           : Professional
    WindowsVersion             : 1909
    OsVersion                  : 10.0.18363
    OsBuildNumber              : 18363
    OsHardwareAbstractionLayer : 10.0.18362.387
    CsSystemType               : x64-based PC
    OsLocale                   : en-GB
