Install the 32/64-bit Windows 10 Pro operating system from
Microsofton your note book or desktop to enhance it with a hybrid
Start Menu, Microsoft Edge web browser, and Cortana personal
assistant. Windows 10 Pro is designed to meet the needs of business
and home users. In addition to all the features found in Windows 10
Home, the Pro version also comes with Bitlocker, Remote Desktop,
Client Hyper-V, and more. Bitlocker protects the data on your hard
drive and other storage devices, which is critical in environments
where sensitive data needs to be kept secure. For accessing the
corporate network, you can join a Domain as well as login in
remotely with Windows 10 Pro.
Without leaving the Windows desktop to access your apps, the hybrid
Start Menu in Windows 10 Pro looks similar to the menu in Windows 7
and combines it with the live tiles used in Windows 8's Start
Screen. The Start Menu has been enlarged to include these tiles,
which can let you view how many email messages you have, the
current weather status, and more. In addition to the live tiles,
you still have enough room on the Start Menu to pin your most
frequently used apps and files. Built with the strengths of the Pro
versions of Windows 7 and Windows 8, Windows 10 Pro combines the
best features of both engines to remain compatible with nearly all
your peripherals and the computer's internal components.
Furthermore, it offers a similar design to the previous version of
Windows, so you can easily start using Windows 10 Pro right away.

Microsoft will be releasing Windows 10 later this month. It's not
long since the company revealed different editions of its upcoming
operating system. It is now prepping for the launch of Windows 10
Pro and Windows 10 Home - the two variants of the desktop platform
- on July 29. When that happens, which version should you opt for?
Unlike Windows 7 (also true for several other Windows versions),
Windows 10 - the desktop operating system - comes in only two
variants for desktop home users. The company has toned down from
seven different flavours for its desktop operating system to just
two. Of the two editions, Windows 10 Pro, as you may have guessed,
has more features.
But unlike Windows 7 and 8.1, in which the basic variant was
markedly crippled with fewer features than its professional
counterpart, Windows 10 Home packs in a large set of new features
that should suffice most users' needs.
What do you get with Windows 10 Pro
The Pro edition of Windows 10, in addition to all of Home edition's
features, offers sophisticated connectivity and privacy tools such
as Domain Join, Group Policy Management, Bitlocker, Enterprise Mode
Internet Explorer (EMIE), Assigned Access 8.1, Remote Desktop,
Client Hyper-V, and Direct Access.
Assigned Access 8.1, for instance, allows you to lock user accounts
and prevent them from accessing specific apps. BitLocker, on the
other hand, is one of the most powerful disk-encryption tools on
Windows. It lets you encrypt your external USB-drives. You also get
tools that facilitate seamless connectivity while joining Azure
Active Directory, and a Business Store for Windows 10. So should
you get the Pro edition instead?
It all comes down to this: do you need features such as Client
Hyper-V, which is a built-in virtualisation solution in Windows.
Does your work require you to connect to a Windows domain? If yes,
you should purchase the Pro edition. Else, the Home edition is what
Beyond Home and Pro
While Windows 10 Home and Pro are direct paths for retail users,
there are other variants of Windows 10 as well like Windows 10
Enterprise and Windows 10 Student. The Enterprise edition, as you
may expect, is meant to meet the demands of medium and large sized
organisations. It comes with even more sophisticated features such
as Device Guard, which gives a company the ability to lock down
devices. Unlike the other two Windows 10 Editions, however, the
Enterprise variant won't be available for sale in retail stores.
Instead, it will be sold through volume licensing.
The Windows 10 Education edition is designed for schools -
students, teachers, staff, and administrators. The edition comes
with most of Enterprise edition's feature. It too won't be
available on sale at retail stores, though, and will be seeded out
through academic volume licensing.
Speaking of other Windows 10 editions, we also have Windows 10
Mobile, and Windows 10 Mobile Enterprise. As their names suggest,
both are designed to empower smartphones and not the desktop
platform. Microsoft is also releasing Windows 10 Core, an operating
system for Internet of Things devices.
If you are upgrading Also worth noting is that if you have already
have a legit copy of Windows 7 Starter, Windows 7 Home Basic,
Windows 7 Home Premium, or Windows 8.1, you will get a free upgrade
to Windows 10 Home. Existing legit users of Windows 7 Pro, Windows
7 Ultimate, or Windows 8.1 Pro will get a free upgrade to Windows
