Clarification on Microsoft Fonts Commercial Usage

The Microsoft Font usage is confusing on the wording used. (https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/typography/fonts/font-faq).

For example, the paragraph here:

Can I make a company logo using the fonts? Unless you are using an application that is specifically licensed for home, student, or non-commercial use, we do not restrict you from making logos using the Windows-supplied fonts.

I don't know where the fonts on my PC came from, but my Windows 11 copy says it's "Windows 11 Home". According to the above paragraph "Unless you are using an application that is specifically licensed for home", because my Windows 11 License is "Windows 11 Home", Does that mean I can't use pre-installed fonts for commercial use?

I did have Microsoft Office/365 Business at one time, but I think the fonts might have been on my PC before that.

Can someone from Microsoft confirm whether I can use the pre-installed fonts on my PC, since it's Windows 11 Home?
