It’s time to make the upgrade to Windows 10 Pro as it offers all the basic features of Windows 10 Home but with added advanced connectivity and privacy tools. For example, Assigned Access allows you to lock user accounts and prevent them from accessing specific apps. BitLocker, on the other hand, is a powerful disk encryption tool on Windows that lets you encrypt your external USB drives. You also get tools that facilitate seamless connectivity while joining Azure Active Directory, and a Business Store for Windows 10.

In summary, the big difference between Windows 10 Home and Windows 10 Pro is the security of the operating system. If you’re looking for an operating system that can secure your data along with having the option to link your device to a domain and then the ability to remotely connect to another PC in the office, then you need Windows 10 Pro.
