Hmmm, interesting. When I open a command window the first line says "Microsoft
Windows [Version 10.0.17134.950]". The only difference is the last three

I changed my sig to match yours and you can see the result. The only odd thing I
see is your use of the "percent,dash" in two places without anything following
it. That apparently made the difference but I don't see how unless 
is just undocumented.

Anyway at least my sig now shows which version number I'm using.

Thanks once again M for helping me out.
