Want to bring Windows, but don’t want to bring a laptop? Thanks to flash technology, you don’t have to. USB and HDMI devices can run Windows, and they’ll fit in your pocket when you’re done with work.
Here’s how you can take Windows with you wherever you go.
Why Do You Need Portable Windows?
Whatever the reason, bringing Windows with you is still an option. As long as you have access to a screen, keyboard and mouse, you’ll be able to stay productive wherever you are.
Windows 10 has several portability options available, which we’ll look at below. While neither is a complete replacement for your desktop or laptop, they are ideal for use in internet cafes, for hot-desking, or even in the library.
Method 1: Windows to Go
The advantage of this is that Windows to Go will save your state, so whatever data you are currently working on will be saved. Unfortunately, Windows to Go only works on Windows 10 Enterprise and Windows 10 Education. If you’re running Windows 10 Home, or like most people, or Windows 10 Pro, this won’t work for you.
Check out our Guide to setup Windows to Go will help you install a portable version of Windows 10 on your USB stick.
Method 2: EaseUs ToDo Backup
EaseUs ToDo Backup is a general backup tool with the added functionality of creating a bootable operating system on a USB. You can create a complete clone of an existing Windows installation if your USB device is large enough — and take it with you.
The EaseUs solution will work on all versions of Windows 7, 8, and 10.
You can find a free version of ToDo Backup on the EaseUs website, which can be used to create a portable Windows drive.

Just connect your drive to the computer and launch EaseUs ToDo Backup. Next, select System Clone, and select the destination disk (your USB device), making sure it has enough storage.
Click Advanced options, then check the box labeled Create a Portable Windows USB Drive. Click OK, then Continue.
Wait while the clone is created and written to your USB device. Eject the drive safely — ready to run on another computer!
Method 3: Continuum for Windows 10 Mobile
It’s basically a system that changes the display output of your phone, depending on what’s connected to it. With a Windows 10 Mobile phone, you have two options: phone, and screen. Just connect a mouse and keyboard via Bluetooth, and the phone to a wireless HDMI device. Microsoft has also produced a special dock for this.
Once connected, your phone becomes a PC, with a standard Windows desktop, and access to all your apps and data. Better yet, the phone is still taking and receiving calls!
Only some Windows 10 Mobile devices are included with Continuum. These include the HP Elite x3, and the Microsoft Lumia 950, which, despite being a few years old, features excellent cameras.
Method 4: Intel Compute Stick and Clones
All you need to do is plug the device into your display’s HDMI port, and turn it on. With a Bluetooth mouse and keyboard connected, you’ll be ready to get to work.
The Intel Compute stick comes with the same advantages over USB devices. This will save the data you created, ready to be accessed again later.
Though compact, these small computers feature either Atom or Core M series processors, at prices for all budgets. Intel is not the only manufacturer of such devices, although they are the most well-known.
