How to check IIS version in windows server?

Hello, I have just started using Windows Server 2016 on Amazon EC2, but I am not able to check which IIS version I am using, as I would like to have Http/2 support which is starting from IIS 10 as far as I know.

So, let me know how I can check IIS version on windows server?
