Windows 10 Editions

Windows 10 has following major editions:

  1. Home
  2. Pro
  3. Enterprise
  4. Education

There are some other editions like Enterprise LTSC and a few others but these editions are not a part of regular release. Microsoft sometimes release these editions and sometimes skips them. Besides skipping, Microsoft can replace or terminate such editions. So users should focus on regular editions which are released with each version update and get latest updates regularly.

Microsoft has not released Windows 10 Ultimate edition just like Windows 7 Ultimate. It might never release because there was no ultimate edition released for Windows 8 as well.

Let’s have a look how each edition is different from others and which edition of Windows 10 is best for you.

Windows 10 Home

The home edition is the basic edition of Windows 10. It is suitable for normal computing. If you use your computer for general purposes and simple office works then you can use the home edition. Don’t underestimate the Home edition by its name because it is not that basic as you might consider. Unlike Windows 7 home editions, Windows 10 Home has more freedom and features. For example, one limitation of Home is that it supports only up to 128 GB RAM memory on the 64-bit version. Seriously, this is 2021 and there is no 128 GB memory available in markets. Maximum 16 GB RAM is installed in the best gaming computers.

Windows 10 Pro (Professional)

Professional edition is suitable for smart business and professional who use the computer as an important part of their working environment such as photography, video editing, troubleshooting, virtualization etc.

Windows 10 Pro edition includes all features included in Home edition, plus following features:

  • BitLocker
  • Windows To Go
  • Hyper-V
  • Joining Windows domain

and more features useful for business.

64-bit version of Windows 10 Pro supports up to 2 TB RAM.

Windows 10 Enterprise

Enterprise edition is designed for large business, organizations and IT professionals. Overall, it has most features than all other editions. Though, it seems a great choice with maximum features, most of its features might be not practically usable by you or your company.

Windows 10 Enterprise edition is suitable for organizations who are either dealing in the IT profession or has a dedicated team of IT professionals to manage complicated tasks. It is generally observed that the Enterprise edition is not suitable for individuals and non-IT literate organizations.

You will need Microsoft Volume License to activate and use Enterprise edition.

Enterprise edition covers almost all features of Pro edition, plus the following features:

  • AppLocker
  • Device Guard
  • DirectAccess
  • Virtualization
  • Microsoft Apps

and more features useful for business.

64-bit version of Windows 10 Enterprise supports up to 2 TB RAM.

Windows 10 Education

Education edition of Windows 10 is developed for academic institutes like schools, colleges, universities, libraries etc. Microsoft Academy Volume License is required to activate and use Windows 10 Education.

This edition has almost the same features as Enterprise except for some business-level features. All features of Windows 10 Pro are covered in the Education edition.

How to Get Windows 10 update?

There are three recommended ways to get latest update:

  1. Download via Windows 10 Media Creation Tool
  2. Upgrade using Windows 10 Update Assistant Tool
  3. Download Windows 10 ISO (Bootable Disc Image)

Here is how to use each of these methods:

Download via Windows 10 Media Creation Tool

Microsoft has launched Media Creation Tool for Windows 10 download and upgrade. You can upgrade your existing Windows OS using the upgrade option. It will save your existing Windows files to recover in future (if needed) and upgrade to the latest version of Windows 10 while keeping your apps, documents and personal files at the same place and condition as those were before the upgrade.

Alternatively, you can download the latest ISO file or create bootable installation media of Windows 10 using the Media Creation Tool. Downloading Windows 10 ISO file is a more flexible option because you can save ISO file and use it in various ways; like mount, ISO to upgrade Windows 10 or create bootable USB/DVD from ISO file using Rufus or your favorite Windows ISO to USB creator tool.

If you choose to directly create a USB/DVD instead of downloading a Windows ISO image file, you will need to insert a USB with at least 8 GB storage capacity. Don’t forget to backup USB data before you start creating Windows 10 installation media creation process because all data on the USB flash drive will erase.

Download Windows 10 Media Creation Tool here.

Upgrade using Windows 10 Update Assistant Tool

Windows 10 Update Assistant (also known as Windows 10 Upgrade Assistant) is best tool if you want to upgrade to Windows 10 latest version. This tool requires internet connection till the upgrade process is finished. The upgrading will fail if internet connection is lost during downloading Windows 10 installation files.

Update Assistant is fantastic software to update as it guides you in a step by step installation wizard to finish in the simplest way. It has a few steps to make upgrading easy. Once the downloading process starts, you can minimize Windows 10 Update Assistant program and keep using Windows. The program will notify you when everything is ready and you will need to restart your computer.

Download Windows 10 Update Assistant here.

Download Windows 10 ISO (Disc Images)

This is the best, easiest and most flexible method to get your desired version. You can use the ISO in different ways, like:

  • Save ISO file for later use.
  • Reuse ISO file for multiple computer.
  • Create many USB/DVD installation media for Windows 10.
  • Mount ISO to upgrade Windows 10 as fast as possible.

You can use Media Creation Tool to download Windows 10 ISO file but that requires you an extra step of downloading Media Creation Tool first. Downloading may fail and restart from beginning if internet connection is lost. On the other hand, you can download latest version of Windows 10 ISO from Windowstan. Links are given below:

How to get the Windows 10 November 2021 Update

Today marks the beginning of the Windows 10 November 2021 Update availability. We continue to listen to customer feedback to adapt Windows to meet your needs as part of our ongoing support for Windows 10, and have scoped the November 2021 Update to focus on productivity, management and security. Today, I’m sharing how we will deliver the November 2021 Update, how to get it, details on the revised Windows 10 update release cadence including the new Windows 10 Long-Term Servicing Channel (LTSC) edition, and some positive news on the pace of the Windows 11 rollout.

Our approach to update availability and rollout
Hybrid and remote environments for working, learning and playing have become the new normal, and we understand how important and central your PC is to your life. As a result, we are taking the same measured approach to the rollout of the November 2021 Update as we have with previous releases, to help enable a smooth update. We will be throttling up availability over the coming weeks to ensure a reliable download experience for all, so the update may not be offered to you right away. In these cases, we will not offer the feature update until we are confident that you will have a good update experience.

How to get the Windows 10 November 2021 Update
The November 2021 Update is available initially to users with select devices running Windows 10, version 2004 or later who are interested in the latest features and are ready to install this release on their device. If you would like to install the new release, open your Windows Update settings (Settings > Update & Security > Windows Update) and select Check for updates. Eligible devices may also be offered the option to choose the Windows 11 upgrade. If the update appears, you can simply select Download and install to get started. Once the download is complete and the feature update is ready to install, we’ll notify you so that you can pick a convenient time to finish the installation and reboot your device, ensuring that the update does not disrupt your activities. Devices running Windows 10, version 2004 or later will have a faster overall update experience with the November 2021 update, because the update will install like a monthly update. For more information on how to get the November 2021 Update, watch this video. To learn more about the status of the November 2021 Update rollout, known issues and new information, visit Windows release health.

Release cadence and support
We will transition to a new Windows 10 release cadence to align with the Windows 11 cadence, targeting annual feature update releases. We are now renaming the servicing option for releases to the General Availability Channel starting with the November 2021 Update (Note: this replaces the previous “Semi-Annual Channel” term for the servicing option). The next Windows 10 feature update is slated for the second half of 2022. We will continue to support at least one version of Windows 10 through Oct. 14, 2025. As a second half (H2) of the calendar year release, Home and Pro editions of the November 2021 Update will receive 18 months of servicing and support, and Enterprise and Education editions will receive 30 months of servicing and support beginning today.

Information for commercial customers
We recommend that commercial organizations begin targeted deployments to validate that their apps, devices and infrastructure work as expected with the new release. Windows 10, version 21H2 is now available through Windows Server Update Services (including Configuration Manager), Windows Update for Business and the Volume Licensing Service Center (VLSC)[1]. You can find more information on IT tools to support Windows 10, version 21H2 in the Windows IT Pro Blog. Today also marks the availability of Windows 10 Enterprise LTSC 2021, which provides customers with access to an option for their special-purpose devices and environments, such as manufacturing or healthcare systems, or other uses which require longer term device update stability. This new client LTSC edition is supported for five years (Note: the new Windows 10 IoT Enterprise LTSC 2021 edition is also available today and has a 10-year support lifecycle).

Staying protected and productive
I have often previously noted that being on the latest version of Windows provides you with the latest features, security improvements and control. We recommend that you update your devices to the latest version of Windows 10 or upgrade eligible devices to Windows 11. Today, based on the positive rollout update experience and user feedback we have seen to date, we are advancing the pace of the rollout faster than we previously anticipated, and are now making the Windows 11 upgrade more broadly available to eligible Windows 10 devices[2].

As a reminder, all editions of Windows 10, version 2004 will reach end of servicing on Dec. 14, 2021, and Enterprise and Education editions of Windows 10, version 1909 will reach end of servicing on May 10, 2022. After these dates, devices running versions 1909 and 2004 will no longer receive monthly security and quality updates containing protections from the latest security threats.

We will closely monitor both the Windows 10 November 2021 Update and the Windows 11 upgrade experiences and share timely information on their rollout status and known issues (open and resolved) across both feature and monthly updates via the Windows release health hub and @WindowsUpdate. Please continue to tell us about your experience by providing comments or suggestions via Feedback Hub.

Note:

[1] It may take a day for downloads to be fully available in the Volume Licensing Service Center across all products, markets and languages.

[2] Eligible Windows 10 devices must be on version 2004 or later, and have installed the Sept. 14, 2021, security update or later, to upgrade directly to Windows 11.
