To check if you have the latest version:

  • In the main menu, click on Settings
  • Click on App Settings
  • Look to the right of the App Version information:
    • If it says "You have the latest version of EdgeRover!" you are up to date
    • Otherwise, you will see: "New version available. Update now"

To get the latest version, click on Update now and then follow the instructions in the software.

In App Settings you can also control whether or not the EdgeRover app starts automatically when you restart or log into your computer.
