    Hyper-V on Home Edition


    i'm on Windows 10 20H2 version, build SO 19052.867

    Okay, in the Home Edition of Windows 10 Hyper-V is not and cannot be enabled, but then why in System Infornation I see this:

    Hyper-V on Home Edition [​IMG]

    and in Windows Features this:

    Hyper-V on Home Edition [​IMG]

    and when I start Disk Management I read for a moment:

    "Connecting to the Virtual Disks service "

    Which virtual disk connection?

    I only have physical disks: who does the Windows connect to?

    :)

    Hyper-V on Windows Home Edition?

    Hummm..... Hyper-V should only be available on 64bit versions of Pro, Enterprise, and Education

    Are you looking at the list of "features" and seeing it on the list? It could be that it's just the "management tools" portions of Hyper-V that are available?

  3. Hyper V deativication

    Hi Geoffrey,

    Hyper-V lets you run an operating system or computer system as a virtual machine on Windows. Before proceeding in disabling
    Hyper-V, please create a backup of your files for security purposes.

    To disable Hyper-V, please follow the steps below:

    • On the Cortana search box, type Turn Windows Features on or off and press
      Enter.
    • Look for the Hyper-V folder.
    • Uncheck the tick-box next to the main Hyper-V folder and click
      OK.
    • Restart your PC.

    Should you have further questions, please let us know.

    Hyper-V on Home Edition

    Hyper-V on Windows Home Edition?

    In my "Services (Local)", the following are listed:

    Hyper-V Data Exchange Service

    Hyper-V Guest Service Interface

    Hyper-V Guest Shutdown Service

    Hyper-V Heartbeat Service

    Hyper-V Remote Desktop Virtualization Service

    Hyper-V Time Synchronization Service

    Hyper-V VM Session Service

    Hyper-V Volume Shadow Copy Requestor

    Since Hyper V isn't supposed to be on Windows 10 Home, I'm wondering what's going on and why it is in my Services. Are there any other services which would appear in Windows 10 Pro, Enterprise or Education that shouldn't appear in Windows 10 Home Services?

    Thanks!
