    Windows 10 Secure Boot


    Compare Windows 10 Editions

    According to that link, Windows 10 Home is missing "Trusted Boot". Is this saying that Windows 10 Home edition does not have the UEFI secure boot feature available (I could not find any specific details of "Trusted Boot")?

    Hello TiredEngineer,

    Secure Boot is a feature of the motherboard's UEFI firmware chip instead if your motherboard supports UEFI.

    Secure Boot - Enable or Disable in UEFI

    Secure Boot - Confirm Enabled or Disabled in Windows 8

    Thanks for the reply! I do know this mobo has it as a feature.

    Are you aware of this "Trusted Boot" feature that is mentioned as missing from the Home edition?

    Trusted boot is basically a generic name for a group of security features. The Microsoft article below helps give some details below.

    Thanks for the quick answers.

    I find it baffling that MS chooses to not include security features which would help ALL users (not just "pro" users).

    Windows 10 Home supports "Secure Boot" as well, but that is hardware feature of your UEFI firmware chip on the motherboard (if it has one).

    I was referring to the Trusted Boot. I read the description in the article you linked. Secure Boot is for the bootloader and Trusted Boot is for drivers/software after Secure Boot is done.

    To me it seems that there is no reason to leave basic security features out of specific versions.

    Yeah, Trusted Boot is not supported by the Home edition.
