What do I need to use Windows 10/11 for personal use?
Unlike Windows Server which has the OS included in the VM cost (per vCPU), Windows 10/11 licenses must be purchased separately. @Manu Philip is correct that you could use an Enterprise E3/E5 license for deploying Windows 10/11 on Azure however if this is for personal, development, or test purposes, you can use Windows client images in Azure which may be more accessible for individual use through a Visual Studio subscription.
There are many options for both the multitenant (professional use) and Windows client (dev/test or personal use) VMs so be sure to go through the documentation but know that you have different options depending on what your intended use is.
- Windows client images (dev/test or personal use)
- Multitenant Windows images (professional use)
