Quick ways to find your Outlook version

Many users may not require the full version number of Outlook but want to know which Office version they have. To this end, the Office, and therefore, Outlook edition, can be spotted on the bottom line of the splash screen just before the program launches.

Alternatively, you can head to Programs and Features in the Control Panel on Windows versions before Windows 11. Search for Office, and the version number should be displayed alongside the package name in the list. For Windows 11 users, head to Settings > Apps > search for Office.
