Running ver on MS-DOS.
The winver command on Windows 10.

In computing, ver (short for version) is a command in various DOS, FlexOS[1], OS/2, Microsoft Windows and ReactOS command line interpreters (shells) such as COMMAND.COM, cmd.exe and 4DOS/4NT. It prints the name and version of the operating system or the command shell. It is roughly equivalent to the Unix command uname.

The command is also available in the open source MS-DOS emulator DOSBox, in the KolibriOS Shell[2] and in the EFI shell.[3] AmigaDOS provides a version command. It displays the current version number of the Kickstart and Workbench.[4] The DEC OS/8 CCL ver command prints the version numbers of both the OS/8 Keyboard Monitor and CCL.[5]

Microsoft Windows also includes a GUI variant of the command called winver, which shows the Service Pack or Update installed (if any) as well as the version.

Windows also includes the setver command that is used to set the version number that the MS-DOS subsystem (NTVDM) reports to a DOS program.

Syntax[edit]

C:\WINDOWS\system32>ver

Microsoft Windows [Version 10.0.10586]

Some versions of MS-DOS support an undocumented /r switch, which will show the revision as well as the version.
