Getting the human readable Windows 10 version from the registry (via Super User)

Posted by jpluimers on 2023/05/15

[Wayback/Archive] powershell – How to get the windows version with command line? – Super User (thanks [Wayback/Archive] harrymc!)

The value can be found under registry key Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion inside the value named DisplayVersion.
The following PowerShell command will get it:
(Get-Item "HKLM:SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion").GetValue('DisplayVersion')
This seems to have been introduced in version 2004 (20H1).
