This is a simple guide on how to find the version number of Shotcut that is installed on your computer, and how to compare it to the most recent version available for dopwnload.

Finding the Shotcut Version Number

Open Shotcut and hover over the Help tab towards the top left of the screen. If you are on a lower resolution monitor, it may appear more to the center/right of the screen.

Next, go to About Shotcut on the dropdown list. Single click.

A popup box will appear and at the top of the box is the version number.

The video also shows you how to compare to the most recent version of Shotcut by clicking the Upgrade option under the Help tab.

If you do this, a small button appears under the preview pane, that allows you to click. This opens a web browser window with a link to the latest version release details, and a convenient download link at the top of the page.

I recommend you check your version of Shotcut and upgrade regularly to keep secure and able to use the most recent features in the open source platform. However, some computers do experience issues with Shotcut.

If you are unfortunate to experience bugs, head over to the Shotcut forums, its a great place to get help, and the lead developer is on hand to help everyone with the most technical issues.
