Just like previous versions of Windows, Windows 10 also comes with different editions catering to different needs. There are a number of editions like Home, Pro, Enterprise, IoT, Education and Mobile, and all of them offer some special set of features to satisfy different users.

There are many different editions, but the competition always seems to be between Home and Pro versions. Here will will compare both of these editions to help you find the right Windows 10 edition for your needs.

A Bird’s Eye View

Before we move to the features of these two editions, it is important to know what is the intention behind the creation of these editions.

Windows 10 Home

As the name suggests, Windows 10 Home is primarily created for use in homes. It has all the major Microsoft features of Windows 10, but it lacks some control over sensitive features and excludes advanced features that are needed by power users.

Windows 10 Pro
Windows 10 Pro is created for advanced users and small businesses who have enough tech knowledge to responsibly use the system and enjoy a few extra features. The extra features like encryption, Remote Desktop, and assigned access, etc., are not needed by the average user, but advanced users will surely like them.
