Windows 10 Pro
Windows 10 Pro is Microsoft's new operating system, designed specifically for professional users and businesses. In addition to the usual devices such as PCs and laptops, the Windows 10 Pro operating system can also run on compatible tablets. Thus, Microsoft Windows 10 Pro on every compatible platform with its features provides the optimal conditions that a professional user needs.
The new Windows 10 Pro operating system offers optimal computer support, especially for advanced users as well as businesses. The Windows 10 Pro operating system shines, as well as the previous Microsoft "Pro" variants, with a user-friendly and modern interface. Microsoft Windows 10 Pro also adapts to any device and its features. As far as the system requirements for the Windows 10 Pro operating system are concerned, they hardly changed in comparison to the two previous versions Windows 7 and 8.1. Therefore, even older computers come with no problems with Windows 10 Pro, which is a strong advantage in a conversion in a company.
New features in the Windows 10 Pro operating system
The Windows 10 Pro operating system provides users with so-called "business features" such as Domain Join, Group Policy Management, BitLocker, Internet Explorer EMIE enterprise mode, Remote Desktop, 8.1 assigned access, and a Hyper-V client. In addition, the Windows 10 Pro operating system brings not only the professional features but also general new features and programs:
• Cortana: Voice Assistant for intuitive operation of the system
• Microsoft Edge: The new Internet browser replaces the previous Internet Explorer
• Face and fingerprint recognition for more security (devices must be present)
• Continuum: Switch to tablet mode to make better use of touch devices
• Windows Holographic: application platform for the associated HoloLens data glasses (augmented reality)
Common programs for mail, calendar, music, photos and videos as well as the new DirectX 12 for graphics optimization are also included in the Windows 10 Pro operating system. In addition, the Microsoft Windows 10 Pro version has the ability to join the Azure Active Directory cloud-based directory and identity management service. Single sign-on gives users access to many cloud SaaS applications, including DropBox, Office 365, and Concur.
Feature renewals in the Windows 10 Pro operating system
In Microsoft Windows 10 Pro, as in the Home Edition, the Start menu has been revised. It now offers an area with tiles, which can be customized with different functions. Also, the desktop of the Windows 10 Pro operating system has the new feature of being able to create multiple virtual desktops for different uses. Microsoft Windows 10 Pro also provides additional access to a business store.
Security and privacy
The FIDO Alliance Standard 2.0 is also supported on the Windows 10 Pro operating system for Internet authentication. In addition, Microsoft Hello, the biometric user authentication for password-free login, was also introduced. In terms of data protection, the Microsoft Windows 10 Pro version includes Enterprise Data Protection for cross-platform data management.
Professional computer support through Microsoft Windows 10 Pro
Windows will only function as a service in the future, which is why after Windows 10, no further versions are planned. But Microsoft is not only focusing on system optimization and troubleshooting. The principle "Windows as a Service" includes new features that were not included at the time of purchase. Thus, Windows 10 is constantly expanding and improving.
NO upgrade or downgrade can be done with Windows 10 keys as the version of the key is stored in the BIOS and will only be overwritten when rebuilding the system. So Home on Pro or Pro on Home does not work. Home goes to Home or Pro goes to Pro (even from older versions of Windows to newer ones, eg Win 7 to Win 10).
If you want to upgrade from Home to Pro, you can do this:
- disconnect internet connection (!)
- First use generic Pro key VK7JG-NPHTM-C97JM-9MPGT-3V66T, no more error message, conversion runs very fast
- Reboot, restore internet connection
- Activation with your key - it works
