Type winver into your Windows search bar and launch the prompt when it pops up. Tell what Windows 10 update version it says you’re on. Also check whether it says you’re on a Windows 10 N version.

this good?

Yup, version 1909. Update your Windows version to at least 2004 or newer. We’ve had reports of users sometimes being unable to launch Citra on 1909 specifically.
