How do I know what version I have? Computer said "You have a new thing to install," so I installed it, but I always like to know what version I'm on. I don't know what version I'm on. All I know is, a colleague sent my Version X a few days ago (early Feb 2011), and now apparently Version X has an update, but I can't find it for beans. Doing an "about" or "help" doesn't seem to give me the info.
Sorry if a million people have asked this question already, but I don't really know how to find stuff like this. If I try to "search forums" while I'm asking this question, I get threatening messages from the Internet like "You didn't save something-or-other. You sure you want to leave this page?" So, OK, I'll ask this question even though I bet a million people asked it already. I apologize. Once I get an answer, I'll keep it in the desktop "hints" file I made long ago, and I'll never have to bother you other Adobe users with the same thing again.
Thanks in advance -- Amy
Found it! The "help, about" screen seems to have two different About's! The first one I found, "Help, About Help" was useless. The second one, "Help, About the actual Adobe program" gave me what I wanted to know -- that this program goes from the year 1984 to the year 2010 or 2011, and at the bottom of the screen, it had a version 10.0.1 -- so that's obviously the latest update.
Sorry to have bothered you all. All's well that ends well -- Amy
EDIT: Thanks, VSH07. I just saw your post after I experimented, found my own answer, and let the world know about it. -- Amy
