    How can I know if my version is Windows 10 M?


    In another forum someone is suggesting that a problem I am experiencing could be because I am running Windows 10 M. I don't think I am. Settings tells me it is Windows 10 Pro. Could it still be an M version?

    I am not aware of a M version of Windows 10 unless you mean M as in Mobile for a Windows phone?
    There is an N version which is only sold in Europe that does not come with Windows Media Player installed as part of the OS.
    You can find out what version you have by Pressing the Win key+R and type winver into the Run box and press enter.

    Then you don't have the N version of Windows 10. As Media Player would not included in that version
    What problems are you experiencing?

    Thanks for the confirmation. I was sure I didn't but needed to be certain.

    The problem isn't Windows connected I believe. In the Vivaldi browser forum some of us (me included) cannot get Vivaldi to play Amazon Prime videos whilst some can. We can all play Amazon Prime videos on our machines using Chrome, Firefox, Opera etc. without problems. We are trying to determine what the problem is and someone thought it might be the Windows version causing the problem due to absent codecs or Media Player itself. I feel it is something in Vivaldi browser. We have tried user agent switchers without success.

    In the left lower corner search type winver to see the windows version and build.

    There are other methods for confirmation such as these administrative powershell commands:

    get-computerinfo
    dxdiag
    msinfo32
    etc.

    Thanks. Yes, I am a multiple poster in that thread. One of the other contributor's posts is the reason for my original question here. Strangely, some Vivaldi users in some countries get Amazon Prime just fine, others don't.

    The Amazon site says it doesn't support Vivaldi, I would believe them. Other Countries might have different protocols.
    Rather then beat your head against the wall, just use a different browser.

    You are right, of course and I am running Firefox too. I do like Vivaldi and wish it well but it is in its infancy and there are other niggles that have been with it for a while and some that pop up from time to time. I will keep it on my system and visit it regularly but FF has to be the default for a (relatively) trouble free life I guess. Thanks for your input.
