Windows 11 Product Name in registry

Nageswara Rao Y 26 Reputation points

In HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion there are some things you could try to use to distinguish between Windows 10 and 11 but it seems that the version registry keys looks same as Windows 10 in Beta build of Windows 11 Version 21H2 (OS Build 22000.176).

The registry keys such as "ProductName", "CurrentMajorVersionNumber", "CurrentMinorVersion" under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion, shows as Windows 10. Please let us know if this will be changed soon? Do we expect these values on Windows 11 future builds or official builds?

    At times one or more of these commands may be useful:

    wmic os get caption
    wmic path cim_datafile where name='c:\windows\explorer.exe' Get Version | find "10"
    wmic os get buildnumber
    systeminfo | findstr /b /C:"OS name"
    systeminfo | findstr /b /C:"OS version"
    slmgr.vbs /dli

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion

    current build
    current build number
