    Cool Detect Windows 10 version (1909, 2004, ect...)

    Hello! It's my first post!
    I wanted to ask how to detect the version of Windows 10. For example:

    Code:
    If Windows 10 2004 Then
       MessageBox.Show ("Version 2004")
    ElseIf Windows 10 1909 Then
       MessageBox.Show ("Version 1909")
    'And more
    End If
    Thank you so much in advance!

    You're off to an inauspicious start. You have posted in the VB.NET CodeBank forum, which is for sharing working code samples. I have asked the mods to move this thread to the VB.NET forum, which is for questions. Please don't double post in the mean time.

    This will give you something like "Microsoft Windows 10 Pro":
    Code:
    Label1.Text = My.Computer.Info.OSFullName
    Whereas this:
    Code:
    Label1.Text = Environment.OSVersion.ToString
    ... gives "Microsoft Windows NT 6.2.9200.0" on my Win 10 1909 PC. There may be an easy look-up from NT version to build version but I'll leave that for you to find.

    So, I was curious and Googled it myself. You can get the build number from the registry:

    Code:
    Label1.Text = Microsoft.Win32.Registry.GetValue("HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion", "ReleaseId", "").ToString()
    You can also get the ProductName from the same key which will give you the "Windows 10 Pro" bit.

    Googled it yourself you say? I didn't know that was possible.

    Probably useful concept for the Thread Starter.

    I found this : How to search on Google

    and this : How to Use Google Search

    and the icing on the cake cake : How to Use Google to Solve Your Programming Questions

    maybe useful to put that at the top of the forum

    (of course, I used a search engine to find that )
