DoctorLaptop’s Tips #70: Windows 10 computers must be kept updated to avoid serious problems. This is NOT OPTIONAL. Everyone should be on v. 1803. If you are still on a previous version you should update now. Failure to do so can cause programs and apps to quit working correctly, can cause slow performance, inability to start (User Profile Not Found errors are common if you fall behind) and other issues.
How to tell what version of Windows 10 you have: press Windows Key + R, type “winver” into the Run dialog box, and press Enter.

The second line in the “About Windows” box tells you which version and build of Windows 10 you have. Remember, the version number is in the form YYMM—so 1607 means the 7th month of 2016. A couple of lines down, you’ll see the edition of Windows 10 you’re using— Windows 10 Pro in our example.
To check for updates now: Select the Start button, and then go to Settings > Update & security > Windows Update, and select Check for updates. Restart when prompted. Then repeat process until Windows Update says your device is up to date, “you have all the updates that are currently available”.
