Due to anti-competitive practices by Microsoft, the European Commission in 2004 forced the Redmond software giant to maintain special editions of its Windows operating systems. The "N" edition is targeted for Europe, and "KN" for Korea. Both editions include all the essential features of the OS except Windows Media Player, Music, Video, Voice Recorder, and Skype.

Some recent features that rely on Windows Media components are not included in Windows 10 N. This includes Windows Mixed Reality, Cortana, Windows Hello, Game DVR, and PDF viewing in the Microsoft Edge browser. Also, the Media Feature Pack for N versions of Windows 10 is incompatible with Windows Mixed Reality. Users who want to use Windows Mixed Reality must install a non-N version of Windows 10.

You might want to get them installed if you are running an "N" edition of Windows 10.
