Microsoft Opereating System Windows 10 HP, Win 10 Pro USB Retail
There are many things both Windows 10 and Windows 10 Pro can do,
but just a few features that are supported only by Pro. To simplify
things we've listed only the Windows 10 Pro features that aren't
also in Windows 10 Home in the table below.
1 GHz processor or faster (x64)
20 GB available free space
1 GB RAM for 32 bits; 2 GB RAM for 64 bits
Which features do they have in common?
All versions of Windows 10 come with Cortana, Microsoft’s virtual
assistant, that can make calendar entries, take dictation, open
applications and local files, search the web, and give directions,
all from voice commands on your PC.
Cortana is now available for Android and iPhones, alongside the
full integration it enjoys on Windows Phone. You can read here how
to use Cortana in Windows 10.
The Microsoft Edge browser is also available on both versions. This
break from Internet Explorer is an interesting one, and Edge
certainly has enough features to make it a worthy adversary to
Chrome, Firefox, and Opera, although it still falls behind on
It offers a stripped-down Reading Mode to declutter articles
online, an Instapaper/Pocket style Reading List for saving articles
you don’t have time to read there and then, plus the ability to
annotate and share web pages. For more information check out our
how to use Edge browser in Windows 10 guide.
As Windows continues its voyage into a touch-compatible future,
Microsoft has made some significant adjustments to the user
interface on both Home and Pro. Gone is the overbearing and oft
confusing Windows 8 touch-first layout, replaced instead with a
modern take on the Windows 7 desktop.
This doesn’t mean touch has been left behind; instead Windows can
now detect the type of hardware you are using and offer the
appropriate interface. This feature is called Continuum and should
make the new Windows far more attractive to the majority of users,
most of whom don’t own a touchscreen laptop or Windows tablet.
A welcome addition to Windows 10 is a fully integrated version of
Virtual Desktops. This feature has been around in past iterations
of Windows, but always required additional software to get it
going. Now you'll be able to create different workspaces on your PC
very easily thanks to a new Task View option. You can also drag and
drop open applications onto different desktops, making the whole
process smooth, fast, and simple. To learn more about this helpful
feature read our guide to using virtual desktops in Windows 10.
The other main upgrade to Windows that can be found of both Home
and Pro is universal apps. This idea is a simple one, in which any
universal app you buy from the Windows Store will work on any of
your devices, be they PC, tablet, phone, or even the Xbox One.
