    Which version do i have, and why does it indicate test mode


    I just deferred feature updates for 30 days so I could upgrade from 1903 to 1909, which is what I did.

    the Hwinfo tool says i am currently running Microsoft Windows 10 Professional (x64) Build 18363.900 (1909/November 2019 Update)

    with Winaero Tweaker, I put the Windows version on my desktop. It says Windows 10 pro build 18362-19h1_release 190318-1202. Is this 1903? And whats with the "test mode. How did that happen?

    Win key + R

    Enter winver

    The current build is 904.

    How did you get v904? I'm on v900 and Windows Update doesn't find a later update.

    If you don`t have any of the issues that the update can clear up, then you don`t need those updates.

    The fixes will show up in the July cumulative update, so folks will get them regardless.

    Yes, as the others have already said, you are on 1909 with the latest monthly cumulative update.

    You have had answers to all your questions apart from this last one. A Test Mode watermark on your desktop indicates that you have turned on Test Mode to allows the use of drivers or apps that are signed as being in development. See Option Three in this tutorial.


    This option allows you to enable Test Mode to disable driver signature enforcement on test-signed code and drivers until you disable Test Mode.

    If you disable Test Mode while you still have unsigned drivers installed, those drivers will stop functioning.

    Hi Bree,
    Thanks for defining Test Mode, and to everyone confirming my version of 1909.

    The reason I asked about Test Mode is because when I googled the version number given by Winaero, I came upon a page that said it was a Test Mode version. I never heard of Test Mode, so I certainly didn't enable it

    Obviously, Winaero needs to fix this. I will contact the developer.
