Show version name in About panel
It's hard to find out which Ae version is running. Only the behind the scenes version number and build are show, not the CC name.
In an effort to improve communications between you and the After Effects team, we are moving this feedback forum to the After Effects page on the Adobe Support Community. As requested, bugs and feature requests will be able to live separately in that forum. If you have an item here that did not make the migration, please bring it over to our new home.
See you soon on the Adobe Support Forum!

You could have just told her that v18 corresponds to the CC2021 release…
I'm not saying I understand the point of the original question either, though; on the Mac the app name is actually After Effects 2021, and you can see this by mousing over the icon in the doc. I assume something similar happens in the task bar on Windows.
My only issue with standardising on the v22 designation was that for a while I thought that was an indication of how far off from release the beta version with multicore rendering was!
