There are other Virtual Machine products available, such as VMware Player, or VirtualBox, since Hyper-V cannot be used on Home Edition.
Windows 10 Home edition doesn’t support Hyper-V feature, it can only be enabled on Windows 10 Enterprise, Pro, or Education.
If you want to use virtual machine, you need to use third-party VM software, such as VMware and VirtualBox.
I'm on Windows 10 Home. Under "Turn Windows features on or off", I see:
Virtual Machine Platform
Windows Hypervisor Platform
I checked both of those, and the system told me to reboot. I did so, and upon opening up System Information, at the bottom I now see:
Virtualization-based security Running
A hypervisor has been detected. Features required for Hyper-V will not be displayed.
So, apparently, the Hyper-V hypervisor can be enabled on Windows 10 Home. I still didn't have the Hyper-V Management Console. I found the following instructions on how to enable the Hyper-V Management Console on Windows 10 Home. I used them, and I now have the console that allows me to create new VMs.
Microsoft reference says "The Hyper-V role cannot be installed on Windows 10 Home."
You can upgrade from Home to Pro version.
