How to Find Your SharePoint Version

I always forget how to find out the SharePoint version. So it’s a sort of reminder for me.

  1. You can see the SharePoint version in Administration Center -> System Settings -> Manage servers in this farm.

  2. Using PowerShell:

    Get-SPFarm | Select BuildVersion

    Get-SPFarm | Select BuildVersion

    The cmdlet is available only in the SharePoint 2010 Management Shell. If you are using a common PowerShell console, you have to add Microsoft.SharePoint.Powershell snap-in.

    if(!(Get-PSSnapin Microsoft.SharePoint.Powershell -ErrorAction:SilentlyContinue))
    Add-PSSnapin Microsoft.SharePoint.Powershell
    get-spfarm | select BuildVersion

  3. One more way:


    sharepoint spfarm version
