Schools can now upgrade all their Win10 Pro devices to Win10 Pro Education version with minimal fuss via the Windows Store for Business –full details are available here.
ICT Admin staff don’t need to manage any reboots or keys, instead they simply assign licenses and when a user signs in to their device with Azure AD credentials their OS will automatically be updated to Win10 Pro Education. The key differences in Win10 Pro Education are:
- Cortana is removed
- Options to manage Windows Tips & Tricks and Windows Store Suggestions
Previously, Win10 Pro Education was only available on devices that were purchased through the Shape The Future Education programme. With this announcement any device managed by the school can be upgraded an this provides a consistent OS platform for ICT administrators to manage.
