Windows 10 Signature Edition.

Hello, my Thinkpad T480s comes with Windows 10 Pro. All is ok, but some thinkpads has Windows 10 Signature Edition. Is it possible to get that version?

Best Regards,

Re: Windows 10 Signature Edition.

It may be cheaper and easier to just download the Windows 10 Media Creation Tool and just install the drivers and software you require.

Re: Windows 10 Signature Edition.



The version of Windows 10 you receive from Lenovo with currently shipping ThinkPads is essentially a Signature Edition image.


Basically, Signature Edition just means the only third-party software on the computer are things like programs to control hardware which do not have their own dedicated entires in Windows Settings or the Control Panel.  A couple of good articles here:

From 2016:
From 2017:


Lenovo has other lines of computers besides ThinkPad, and you can get those with the Signature Edition customizations when you order a Lenovo system from the Microsoft Store:
