    That is not Windows10 Professional. That’s either Windows 7 Home Premium or Windows 7 Pro. That’s clearly evident from the screen caps. Windows 10 totally redid the control panel. Thre are no logos, only 4 colors, white, black dark blue and red and text. That’s it aside from switch looking items on the pages. And there’s no control panel in in the menu that comes up after pressing the Windows key + X. It’s “Settings”. So this is completely useless as of at least Windows 10 Pro Build 18362
