Are there many or any differences between W10 Home & Pro

I have a DVD with most versions of W10 - currently running W10 Pro....wonder if Home Ed is less useable or what the differences are?

If you read through pats post it covers the differences.  I really don’t see a reason for home/student users to have any need for pro. You can launch Remote Desktop from home, you just can’t host a session (no biggie as there are other tools that are better suited anyway).

At least in Pro, users can defer or delay Windows Updates.  Home/student users don't get to do that in Win10 Home edition as Microsoft will push any Win10 updates anytime they want

I don't have a home version to play with, but I believe that wiki states it is done with WSUS to defer on the pro/enterprise versions.
