The Professional version of Windows 10 has numerous advantages and extra features when compared to the Home edition that comes pre-installed on the vast majority of PCs. For anyone who is a fan of tweaking, Windows 10 Professional gives you access to the Group Policy Editor which can be used to customize and secure the operating system in a number of ways.

Microsoft's embracing of Linux in recent years means that Windows Subsystem for Linux 2 (WSL 2) makes it possible to install various Linux distros within Windows. But this command line tool is not something that is to everyone's taste. Another option in Windows 10 Professional is Hyper-V, which -- assuming you have compatible hardware -- lets you run additional operating system in a virtualized environment.

Other great Pro-only features include Remote Desktop, the security offered by Windows Sandbox, and the encryption power of BitLocker.

All this, and more, can be yours for the very special price of $39.99.

  1. Click Start > Settings and head to Update & Security
  2. Move to the Windows Update section and click Check for updates
  3. Download and install any updates that are available and then move to the Activation section
  4. Click the Change product key link to the right, enter the key you've bought, click Next and follow any on-screen instructions
  5. ​Windows will download the Professional features, then reboot

Now enjoy everything Windows 10 Professional has to offer.
