    How to know my version


      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

          Just open reader and go to Help>About Reader X and you will get "Adobe Reader X " screen which has Reader version at bottom left as shown in the screenshot below.If you have applied the latest update ,then your version will come as 10.0.1.

            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
