    Compare Features Between Windows 10 Editions

    information   Information
    This tutorial will show you a comparison of Windows 10 editions to help find out which Windows is right for you.

    Windows 10 has eight editions (excluding the four "N" editions), with varying feature sets and intended hardware.

    Windows 10 Home is the consumer-focused desktop edition. It offers a familiar and personal experience for PCs, tablets and 2-in-1s. Windows 10 Home will help people do great things, both big and small. With it, they will be more productive and have more fun thanks to a long list of new innovations: Cortana, the world’s most personal digital assistant; the new Microsoft Edge web browser; Continuum tablet mode for touch-capable devices; Windows Hello face-recognition, iris and fingerprint login; and right out of the box, a broad range of universal Windows apps like Photos, Maps, Mail, Calendar, Music and Video*.

    We are also bringing the Xbox gaming experience to Windows 10, giving games and gamers access to the Xbox Live gaming community, enabling the capture and share of gameplay and giving Xbox One owners the ability to play their Xbox One games from any Windows 10 PC in their home.

    Windows 10 Pro is a desktop edition for PCs, tablets and 2-in-1s. Building upon both the familiar and innovative features of Windows 10 Home, it has many extra features to meet the diverse needs of small businesses. Windows 10 Pro helps to effectively and efficiently manage their devices and apps, protect their sensitive business data, support remote and mobile productivity scenarios and take advantage of cloud technologies. Windows 10 Pro devices are a great choice for organizations supporting Choose Your Own Device (CYOD) programs and prosumer customers. Windows 10 Pro also lets customers take advantage of the new Windows Update for Business, which will reduce management costs, provide controls over update deployment, offer quicker access to security updates and provide access to the latest innovation from Microsoft on an ongoing basis.

    Windows 10 S is a specific configuration of Windows 10 Pro that offers a familiar, productive Windows experience that’s streamlined for security and performance. By exclusively using apps in the Windows Store and ensuring that you browse safely with Microsoft Edge, Windows 10 S keeps you running fast and secure day in and day out.

    Windows 10 Enterprise builds on Windows 10 Pro, adding advanced features designed to meet the demands of medium and large sized organizations. It provides advanced capabilities to help protect against the ever-growing range of modern security threats targeted at devices, identities, applications and sensitive company information. Windows 10 Enterprise also supports the broadest range of options for operating system deployment and comprehensive device and app management. It will be available to our Volume Licensing customers, so they can take advantage of the latest innovation and security updates on an ongoing basis. At the same time, they will be able to choose the pace at which they adopt new technology, including the option to use the new Windows Update for Business. With Windows 10, Enterprise customers will also have access to the Long Term Servicing Branch as a deployment option for their mission critical devices and environments. And as with prior versions of Windows, Active Software Assurance customers in Volume Licensing can upgrade to Windows 10 Enterprise as part of their existing Software Assurance benefits.
    • Windows 10 Enterprise E3 is the new name for Microsoft's traditional Windows Enterprise with SA offer. Windows 10 Enterprise E3 includes access to Enterprise Edition and the exclusive features that come with it including Credential Guard and Device Guard, as well as extensive manageability and managed user experience. Windows 10 Enterprise E3 also includes Software Assurance benefits, in the VL channels that support SA.
    • Windows 10 Enterprise E5 is the newest offer for customers who want to take advantage of everything in E3 with the addition of Windows Defender Advanced Threat Protection (Windows Defender ATP) – a new service that helps enterprises detect, investigate, and respond to advanced attacks on their networks.

    Windows 10 Enterprise LTSB
    Windows 10 Enterprise LTSB (Long Term Servicing Branch) is like Windows 10 Enterprise but will not receive any feature updates, gives companies more control over the update process and is the most stripped down edition of Windows 10 available. It lacks the following applications and features:
    • Store including most modern apps like Xbox, Contacts, etc.
      • There are only four remaining modern apps: Contact Support, Search, Settings and Windows Feedback
      • It is also not possible to reinstall the Store
    • Cortana
    • Edge
    • Windows Media Player (only N-Version)

    The following applications are replaced with their old counter part:
    • Modern Calculator is replaced with the original calc.exe
    • Photos is replaced with Photo Viewer as used by Microsoft till Windows 8.1

    Windows 10 Education builds on Windows 10 Enterprise, and is designed to meet the needs of schools – staff, administrators, teachers and students. This edition will be available through academic Volume Licensing, and there will be paths for schools and students using Windows 10 Home and Windows 10 Pro devices to upgrade to Windows 10 Education.

    Windows 10 Mobile is designed to deliver the best user experience on smaller, mobile, touch-centric devices like smartphones and small tablets. It boasts the same, new universal Windows apps that are included in Windows 10 Home, as well as the new touch-optimized version of Office. Windows 10 Mobile offers great productivity, security and management capabilities for customers who use their personal devices at work. In addition, Windows 10 Mobile will enable some new devices to take advantage of Continuum for phone, so people can use their phone like a PC when connected to a larger screen.

    Windows 10 Mobile Enterprise is designed to deliver the best customer experience to business customers on smartphones and small tablets. It will be available to our Volume Licensing customers. It offers the great productivity, security and mobile device management capabilities that Windows 10 Mobile provides, and adds flexible ways for businesses to manage updates. In addition, Windows 10 Mobile Enterprise will incorporate the latest security and innovation features as soon as they are available.

    Windows 10 IoT Core is for small footprint, low cost devices like gateways.

    Thanks for posting Shawn. It shows me for my use Home is enough, as I don't use a server or media server. And probably for some things I could just go 3rd party.

    Hello Remo,

    What will be good will depend on your wants and needs. Retail licenses will go as high as the Pro edition.

    it depends, what are you using it for? if it's just basic browsing and personal use, maybe even gaming, home edition would be the way to go. if it's anything beyond that, I'll need more information on what you may be using it for.

    I chose the Pro version because I need Hyper-V virtualization and also BitLocker drive encryption. These may be important to many people.

    Windows 10 Pro x64

    Thank you for the great information, but I have a question


    GoodDay,
    Thank you for the great post. I was on the Insider program from the first day, however my not living in theU.S. restricted my ability to test all the features of Windows 10. On the day Windows was released to the public, I downloaded it, converted it to an ISO, and did a clean install.
    From that day I have been getting the regular updates, so at the moment I am on version number Windows 10 x64 Pro (Build 10240). My question is this, I have received from one of my sources,a DVD of Windows 10 Education x64 English, with the DVD number 6848120 (en_windows_10_education_x64_dvd_6848102.iso), along with the activation numbers for gvlkEducation, and gvlkEducation N. Do you think it would be worth my while to reinstall this version just to get the added features of the Education version?
    I realise this sounds a bit silly, but I have always tried to have the top of the line version of Windowson my machine (I went from Windows 7 Ultimate x64, to Windows 10 Pro x64). I don’t mind reinstalling everything again, I have always done a complete reinstallevery couple of years anyway, going all the way back to the DOS days.
    I have read your excellent post on the different features of Windows 10, and would very much like the input of this forum. Again, “is it worth my while to upgrade from Window 10 Pro, toWindows 10 Educational?” Thank you, and I look forward to any, and all responses. You can PM, or email me when you have any opinions.

    Hello TMV,

    I suppose it really depends on your needs. If you need the extra features, then it probably would be better to install and activate the Education edition.
