    For Option 6, I see different values from yours:

    - EditionID = Core

    - Product Name = Windows 10 Home

    So I see two [Key][Value] pairs. You see one.

    Thanks

    I use the ProductName entry instead for that particular property. For mine it's Windows 10 Home.

    See ReportOSVersion.bat post - TenForums

    The script works for Windows 11 as well.

    With every option you've provided I receive an indication of running Windows 10 Pro, however, in the registry under the Registry Key CompositionEditionID within path: Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion, I have the value of: Enterprise. I've struggled with figuring out if this is Pro or Enterprise for a while, any ideas?

    Pro, EDU, and Enterprise editions are all built on the same Enterprise platform.

    Depending on your license, Windows takes a different identity (which features are supported). The reason this happens is to allow companies to upgrade Pro to Enterprise by simply swapping the license, and not having to reinstall Windows.

    You can't on the other hand, move from Home to Pro/EDU/Enterprise without reinstalling.

    In tutorial, it refers to Windows S. There is not such editition/SKU as Windows S.

    The editions are either Home S or Pro S.

    Pro S is a legacy set up (original S mode was based on Pro) and no longer sold with OEMs, but you can install it yourself (although why you would want to though....). I did it to see if it still works on Windows 11 and it does.

    The cmd/regedit methods will not work in S mode but winver does

    Also, Home Single Language is missing from SKU list.

    Shawn... In Option 6, shouldn't the ProductName value and its data be highlighted, not the EditionID?

    I use the same for a PowerShell query:
    Code:
    Get-ItemProperty -Path 'HKLM:\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion' | Select-Object -Property ProductName
    Hope this helps...

    Hello Rick,

    It can be either one since they both will show the edition.

    Sorry folks, ProductName isn't definitive.

    I would vote for wmic os get caption, or its PS equivalent.
    Code:
    PS C:\Windows> Get-WmiObject -Class Win32_OperatingSystem | select Caption
    
    Caption
    -------
    Microsoft Windows 11 Pro
    
    
    PS C:\Windows> Get-ItemProperty -Path 'HKLM:\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion' | select EditionID,ProductName
    
    EditionID    ProductName
    ---------    -----------
    Professional Windows 10 Pro
