If you are meaning "How do I tell if I have Windows 10 Anniversary Update installed?" then here's the simple way to find out thanks to a bit of "Googling" but without the screenshots and additional ways.

http://tunecomp.net/how-to-check-if-the-windows-10-anniversary-update-is-installed-or-not/

Press Win+R.
Type winver in the box
Press Enter:

Anniversary update has 1607 build number. You should see Version 1607 (OS Build 14393.10):

Or obviously later since I hope you have updated since last August ....

 If you have a tablet with no external keyboard then just use the touchscreen to type in the Cortana box the word winver and you should get the same result as the keyboard shortcut Winkey + R -- in fact you can do this on a non-tablet too. That Cortana search box can be helpful when it wants to!

Windows Keyboard shortcuts, in all versions of Windows, are a tremendous help and you can download them if you Google on [ Windows Keyboard shortcuts  ]

sorry for my ignorance bjm_

but  where would I see this particular history item?

From the TechNet link in bjm_ post you will see the history. Version 1607 is the Anniversary Update and was scheduled for July of 2016 but was delayed and released on Aug 2 2016.

Per the chart the bottom entry is the Anniversary Update and is KB 3176929.

However it will not appear in the Update History as the history was cleared when it was installed. The next update was on Aug 9  and from then on the updates appear in Update History.

Waited a year for 1511 in-place upgrade.  So, no rush to 1607.
Just me.

Re: what is the update that notes the windows 10 aniversary update?

Maybe why yours is different. I let my main system update on day 1 and after a general test I updated my 2 other systems. I got build 14393.10 and build 14393.447 was released on 11/08 and maybe you got the new build and that is why it shows in update history, but that's just a guess.

I did have image backups using Macrium so no worries and I went with it.

And on all the systems the update history was cleared.

Re: what is the update that notes the windows 10 aniversary update?

OK this is horrible to admit, but I have a laptop that I have not run Microsoft updates on since the end of July. So when I update it this weekend, will it just go straight to installing  Windows 10 anniversary  edition build 14393.693?

What version is it.

If it is 1511 you may just get the 1511 updates as MS is still updating 1511 version.

You may have to manually update to 1607 from this site.

Re: what is the update that notes the windows 10 aniversary update?

oh now I am all confused :)

I think I will just run Microsoft updates through the normal route and see where it puts me

Re: what is the update that notes the windows 10 aniversary update?

That's the best plan, then you will know for sure.

Let us know what you get.

Here is the link to updates for 1607 and 1511.

There's not much you can do to control updates in Windows 10 Home at present nor in the indicated major update estimated in a couple of months' time although Pro is supposed to get the ability to delay updates for a period.

I would not worry about getting the Windows 10 AE Update -- I've had them live with no problems but allow time for them so pick when it suits you and then force the update through the Security and Updates route.

It would be prudent, if you have installed many programs and have much in the way of personal files to make an image of the hard drive everything is on and make it to a different drive to the one in your laptop. If you need help on how to do this just shout!

And as a minimum make sure you have backed up to safety you personal files at least.

FWIW ~ I've been controlling my Win10 Home automatic updates thru Noel Carboni's ConfigureAutomaticUpdates tool and Microsoft's Wushowhide tool, since my W8.1 in-place W10 upgrade. 
I'll always wait till Woody posts at least DEFCON:3, usually the last week of the month.
I'll patch for example Jan in Feb unless, Woody says patch sooner.

I hid, as per Woody, & chose to install Feature update to Windows 10, version 1607 on 11/24/2016.  Just me.  YMMV

I know a number of people who use those techniques and are happy with them. But every one of them doing this is a skilled computer user .....

Personally I dislike messing with what Windows wants to do -- although I did block my Windows 7 workhorse from upgrading to Windows 8/10 and still have the utility in place. 

But again I use GWX Control Panel rather than the registry modification.

Perhaps I'm lucky but so far I've not had any problems with 8 or 10 installing Windows Updates when it wants to although I do have the Windows 10 setting ON that tells it not do anything between a time slice I can set, not exceeding 12 hours.

It can be very annoying when you can't start to use or to shut down you computer because Windows had grabbed control to do an upgrade involving restarts.

Not intending to go waaay off topic. 
I put off W10 free upgrade until I was reasonably anticipating, I would be able to control auto forced updates. Just not a fan of automatic nor scheduled. 
I make my backup and patch on my time-table.

My brand new machine came with Win10 1511 Home and installed it a few updates before installing 1607.

A little bit of knowledge is... well a little bit of knowledge.

Is that time ever going to come unless you have or upgrade to Pro or higher?

My W10 Home setup controls (at this time, to my satisfaction) automatic forced updates.  
Have not thought about Pro or higher.
