What are the main differences between Windows 10 Home and Pro?
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.
|Windows 10 Home||Windows 10 Pro|
|Create and join a domain (work network)||No||Yes|
|Group policy management||No||Yes|
|Enterprise Mode Internet Explorer||No||Yes|
|Windows Store for Business||No||Yes|
|Windows Update for Business||No||Yes|
|Max supported RAM||128GB||2TB|
If most of these features are meaningless to you, that’s no surprise: most people don’t
