How do we know the VERSION of OneDrive in our computer?


This is Windows 10 and Office 365 environment.
When I installed the OneDrive, there is a message “a newer version of OneDrive is installed”
Question: How do I check that the installed version of OneDrive is the business or commercial version (not a personal version)?

There is a single version for both business and commercial accounts, the functionality exposed is simply a bit different depending on the account type. If you want to check the actual version number and such, right-click on Onedrive's tray icon > Settings > About.

When I follow your direction above:

Onedrive's tray icon > Settings > About.

I found the followings:
About Microsoft OneDrive
(It is checked) "Get oneDrive Insider preview updates before release
version 2021 (Build 21.196.0921.0007) (64-bit)

OneDrive Device ID

I am still confused. I still did not know What VERSION of OneDrice has been installed in my computer? Is depends of the VERSION of Windows 10 installed in my computer? Please explain. Thanks!

@tjie. Not sure what else you're looking for. What Vasil showed you works. Your post also shows it. Another way to see that same version is via Control Panel\Programs\Programs and Features > Microsoft OneDrive
Your help has saved me hundreds of hours of internet surfing.

You have installed the latest version of OneDrive.

The version of OneDrive is not related to the version of Windows 10.

Windows 10 has a built-in OneDrive app (metro app) but if you have a Microsoft 365 subscription, the built-in version will be superseded with the OneDrive app from Microsoft 365



Thanks for all.

I am still confused whether I have a OneDrive for Personal or OneDrive for Business. How to check for it?.
