In this blog post, we will take a closer look at whether the professional version is good for playing games and whether it is worth buying instead of other versions.
What is the difference between Windows 10/11 Professional and other licenses?
In this article we will talk about the 2 most common licenses available: Home and Professional; each designed to meet specific needs within those markets. The professional version is especially suitable for businesses and businesses that require stricter security features. The Home license is the standard consumer version of Windows that is intended for most home users.
As mentioned before, the professional version is usually designed for businesses and for those who want higher security. As such, there is no benefit to having the Professional license over the Home license if your purpose is solely to play games.
The Home license is the basic window with the most basic features and regular security that most people you know have, it is perfect for gaming as most games are designed to be compatible with this operating system as it is the most widely used operating system in the world and its security features won’t get in the way of the games nor does it have too many features that can slow it down and reduce FPS or increase loading times. If your goal is gaming, the Home license is recommended.
Can I upgrade from Windows Home to Pro?
No, you can’t do this. You must purchase a full retail license if you want Windows Professional.
