Although, having migrated to .net Core for the most part,we all have to support our older applications using .net Framework. As a part of routine, you may tend to update the .net framework in your application only to find out that your test or even prod (yikes!) do not have the latest framework installed. 

One way to find the version is using microsoft’s documentation here:

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/dotnet/framework/migration-guide/how-to-determine-which-versions-are-installed

You, look at the complexity, and may just give up. I’ve found an easier place to check the same. And it positively has worked for me every time.

All you need is to browse to a folder path:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Reference Assemblies\Microsoft\Framework.NETFramework

Here’s the structure:

And That’s it. You will see all the framework’s installed on this machine, even a minor version has a different folder as well. Easy on the eye indeed.
