When Windows "Home" versions are not recommended at BC
If you are using Windows 10 Home or Windows 7 Home Premium, please be aware of the following:
- Windows 7 Home Premium does not support a multi-lingual user interface.
- Home versions do not let you join the BC domain. If you need access to on-campus servers and BC printers, you need to join the BC domain. You do not need to join the BC domain to print to the Libraries (i.e., remote printing). Note: Students can access the web and most BC online services (Agora Portal, etc.) by just connecting to the BC wireless or wired network, so it's not necessary to join the BC domain.
If you need a multi-lingual user interface or need to join the BC domain, BC recommends you upgrade to Windows 10 Pro.
