    Hello
    Can anyone tell me what is the difference between Windows 10 Pro and Windows 10 Enterprise? Which version has all the "Bells & Whistles"?
    Thank you.

    Windows 10 pro includes everything e.i App store, Cortana, MS Edge & others crappy apps.
    Windows 10 Enterprise S excludes everything stated above in my opinion but one can install store and edge browser following the tutorials posted in this section .

    As the OP asked about the differences (Bells & Whistles) between Windows 10 Pro and Windows 10 Enterprise (Not Enterprise 'S'), and which has more, the Enterprise is the one to go.

    In Reality, the Enterprise has more IT Features and additional security compared with the Pro. Enterprise is built for SME to big Businesses and will work with Networks and Server better than Pro. Just, the (legal) Enterprise License is available as VL (Volume License) only.

    For a 'private' and 'normal' user the Pro is the normal way to fo. In case the user is using a bigger network and also any kind of Server, the Enterprise is suggested to use.

    And that's it: It's all about what the user will use it for!

    Both suck for a 'normal' user.
    Just get Education edition!
    - it has all the power of Enterprise, but with better policies applied already (for example, no subscribed content bloat - clean ltsb-like start menu).
    - it is available in the consumer channel (intended for stand-alone pc's, but can very well work in a domain), so it's in the standard ISO along with Home and Pro editions, and can be registered via retail-like key.
    - you can get it legally for free if being a student / teacher in an education organization that has a Microsoft subscription.

    It's all about WHAT a User will need, and not what he could get.

    In reality, most of the normal users are not able to handle all available features which they got with their used edition! That said, the High-End Version isn't always what is needed special if the user isn't able to handle that. And the question of the OP where clearly about the Enterprise Version!

    In reality, most of the "normal" users are not able to handle all available "features" that come with all editions except LTSB and Education - mainly bloat in the start menu, which they fight pointlessly only to find it gets reinstated after it finishes downloading :) As seen on Windows 10 subreddit - top issue along search hijacking and telemetry. And paradoxically, the same "normal" users have an adversity for easy solutions in the form of anything regedit / cmd / powershell / batch files / group policies. Hence my humble suggestion to use Education as it supersedes Enterprise in suitability for the above numerous and loud category of "normal" users.

    the education edition feels like pro plus, IMO

    only most versions of Win10 education were in consumer channel (except the 1607 RS1 version, which was only in VL). sometimes the education edition is included in the multi-editions of Win10 esds

    but also both education & enterprise editions get additional 6 months of updates after EOS (end of service/support) for the home & pro editions of certain win10 versions [up to v1709]
