What's Windows To Go

- From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

"Windows To Go is a feature in Windows 8.1 Enterprise, Windows 8 Enterprise, Windows 10 Enterprise, and Windows 10 Education that allows them to boot and run from certain USB mass storage devices such as USB flash drives and external hard disk drives which have been certified by Microsoft as compatible. It is a fully manageable corporate Windows environment."

Windows To Go USB

According to Wiki's explanation, the creation of Windows To Go drives provides users with an imaged version of Windows, which allows them to take Windows OS anywhere on any compatible device. It's particularly useful when Windows startup issues occurred, such as your PC couldn't start properly.

However, the Windows To Go feature is confined and only available in Windows 10 Education and Windows 8/8.1/10 Enterprise. Can Windows users out of the supported Windows editions enjoy the Windows To Go convenience and create bootable USB of their own? 

It's possible, actually, by either using Diskpart command line or third-party Windows To Go creator.
