    If on TechBench, the way you do it is look at the filename of the download, if it has 1511 in the filename such as Win10_1511_English_x64.iso for the U.S. English version for example, it's November, if it doesn't then it's 10240.

    Thank you for responding so quickly but I don't think I have access to TechBench. I was planning to use the download link at Windows 10

    When you get your ISO downloaded, mount it with Explorer. Look at properties of setup.exe and the details tab. It will show the build, which will be 10586.0,, you will need to check WU for all updates. If you get 10240.something, it is pre-RTM. When done, thru This PC, eject the mounted ISO.

    Unfortunately I was hoping to check before doing the download due to my ISP imposed limited download quota.

    You're talking about using the Media Creation Tool, just download the tool which is 18MB and properties on it.

    TechBench is available if you want to download the ISO directly which is here:

    I looked at the properties of the media creation tool and it has a version 10.0.10586.0 so it seems that MS is saying it will download the latest. So I'll give it a try and see what happens :).

    Once you've downloaded and installed/updated, be sure to check for updates because there should be at least one cumulative update ready for you.

    Actually, when you install from the ISO, it's basically a in-place upgrade. At the beginning, it will ask if you want to download updates similar to #9 in the link below so if you say yes, after install, it will be 10586.14. If you say no, it will be 10586.0 after installing and you'll have to Windows Update the rest.

    Just to make this clear, it's only an in-place upgrade if you select to keep your apps and files. If you select "Keep nothing" it is a clean install.
