    Windows version number reporting conflict

    Hello. When I run winver, the WIn10 splash screen reports I am running Version 1909 (OS Build 18363.1379). However, the version painted to the screen is Build 18362.19h1_release.190318-1202. Any idea why these two aren't the same? (BTW I have tried turning the HKEY_CURRENT_USER/Desktop/PaintDesktopVersion reg key off & back on, but no change). Thanx.

    The paint-screen thing has been gone from the RTM/Released versions of Win10 but still available on the Insider Preview [BETA/test] versions, changing the Registry to display it in the RTM version no longer works. I use the built-in winver command in the WinKey+R dialog box but it doesn't show all the numbers of the IP version that are on the screen. My 2 IP computers show Build 21312.1010, most current.
