I am using SharePoint 2013. I am using Version History for Documents. Furthermore, I have decided to use Major Versions and Minor Versions. My question is, how can I tell the difference between a Major Version and Minor Version of a Document?

I read that Major Versions have a whole number and a Minor Versions have a decimal number. I only see decimal numbers for both.

Thanks for your help. enter image description here

What you have is only minor versions on your document library. You have enabled major and minor versioning on your document library, and unless users don't publish a major version, the documents will continue to save like minor versions.
