Install the 32/64-bit Windows 10 Home operating system from Microsoft on your notebook or desktop to enhance it with a hybrid Start Menu, Microsoft Edge web browser, and Cortana personal assistant. Without leaving the Windows desktop to access your apps, the hybrid Start Menu in Windows 10 Home looks similar to the menu in Windows 7 and combines it with the live tiles used in Windows 8's Start Screen. The Start Menu has been enlarged to include these tiles, which can let you view how many email messages you have, the current weather status, and more. In addition to the live tiles, you still have enough room on the Start Menu to pin your most frequently used apps and files. Built with the strengths of Windows 7 and Windows 8, Windows 10 Home combines the best features of both engines to remain compatible with nearly all your peripherals and the computer's internal components. Furthermore, it offers a similar design to the previous version of Windows, so you can easily start using Windows 10 Home right away.

Questions & Answers
Question: Whats the difference between Windows 10 Home and Pro?
Answer from Microsoft Certified Specialist: There are many things both Windows 10 Home and Windows 10 Pro can do, but just a few features that are supported only by Pro: create and join a domain, bitlocker, remote desktop, hyper-v, Enterprise Mode Internet Explorer, Assigned Access, Remote Desktop Connection. Windows 10 Home will suffice for the vast majority of users who just want to browse the web, do a work, and manage their media files, play PC games. The benefits of the Pro version focus on security and compatibility, but of course the value of these features will come down to whether you actually intend to use them or not, and most home users won't.

Best Features of Windows 10 Home
Windows Hello logs you into your Windows devices in less than 2 seconds, 3x faster than a password. Use your camera to recognize your face or try your fingerprint reader – either way Windows Hello recognizes you instantly. You can always keep your PIN as a backup.
Windows Hello lets you use your digital wristband, smart watch, phone and other companion devices to quickly unlock your Windows PC without using a password.6 By already certifying your identity, these devices give you another choice for quick, secured sign-ins.
Microsoft has built its personal voice assistant Cortana right in the Start menu. Even if you’re already using Google Now or Siri, having Cortana on your desktop can be handy. You can perform web searches to get many of the same quick answers by simply pressing the Win key and typing a question like “How many ounces are in a cup” or “What’s the weather like?”
Cortana can help you find all sorts of online information via natural language queries you ask using text or voice commands. Cortana can also apply those natural language smarts to search your hard drive, OneDrive, and business network for files that meet certain filters, like “Find pictures from June.”
