Why 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 offers the optimal conditions that a professional user needs on every compatible platform with its functions.
The new Windows 10 Pro operating system offers optimal computer support, especially for advanced users, but also for companies. The Windows 10 Pro operating system shines, just like the previous Microsoft “Pro” variant, with a user-friendly and modern interface. Microsoft Windows 10 Pro also adapts to every device and its characteristics. As for the system requirements for the Windows 10 Pro operating system, they have hardly changed compared to the two predecessor versions Windows 7 and 8.1. Therefore, even slightly older computers can handle Windows 10 Pro without any problems, which is a great advantage when switching in a company.
New features in the Windows 10 Pro operating system
The Windows 10 Pro operating system offers its users so-called “business features” such as domain joining, group policy management, BitLocker, the enterprise mode for Internet Explorer EMIE, Remote Desktop, an assigned access 8.1, as well as a Hyper-V client. Furthermore, the Windows 10 Pro operating system brings new features and programs in general, in addition to the professional functions:

Usual 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 includes the option to join the cloud-based directory and identity management service Azure Active Directory. With the help of a one-time login, users can thus gain access to numerous cloud SaaS applications such as DropBox, various Office products and Concur.
