May 29, 2020

Windows 10 Home

The consumer-focused desktop edition, it’s actually the standard version of Windows 10.

Windows 10 Pro

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. It includes BitLocker, which allows you to fully secure your devices from potential security threats, a Remote Desktop feature, and more in-depth access to cloud technologies.

Windows 10 N

Windows 10 N is just Windows 10 without Windows Media Player and related technologies pre-installed including Music, Video, Voice Recorder, and Skype. It is for customers in Europe and lacks media-related technologies.

Windows 10 Enterprise

Builds on Windows 10 Pro, adding advanced features designed to meet the demands of medium and large-sized organizations. It’s designed for large-scale businesses and operations that need super-tight security for private information over dozens of computers.

Windows 10 Education

Builds on Windows 10 Enterprise, and is designed to meet the needs of schools – staff, administrators, teachers, and students.

Windows 10 S

It is aimed primarily at education uses. It is a lighter operating system that should work on low-powered (and cheaper) devices that don't have cutting-edge processors. it has one key limitation - you can only download apps from the Windows Store. That means you can't install regular programs from other sources.
