Before I talk about Windows 10 LTSC here's a few things you might wanna know about :-
1.What is windows 10 bloatware?Windows PC's start off slower than they should be, clogged with unnecessary preloaded software known as bloatware. Programs such as candy crush soda saga, groove music, movies & tv etc are preinstalled. These apps run in the background and slow down computers and degrade performance a lot without users knowing it. Even if you have a look at your start menu in Windows 10 you'll notice a lot of apps which are complete crap and don't ever use them. If there's one thing I hate the most is Cortana.
2.Why not just use a debloater on a default windows 10 iso?
Even if you've debloated your windows 10, microsoft will reinstall some or the other crap with a security patch or force install updates in the background. Nobody wants to give off free
performance to microsoft whether you have a low end pc like me or a good gaming rig.
3.What is Windows 10 LTSC?
The Long-Term Servicing Channel (LTSC) is designed for Windows 10 devices and use cases where the key requirement is that functionality and features don’t change over time. In simple words, major updates won't be updated on this version of windows so basically windows won't break that way. Since its made for IT admins and made superlite why not try it out!
4.A huge fps boost?If you have a high end pc don't expect such a big fps boost. You'll be getting about the same fps. If you are a low end pc gamer it will at least stop the game from crashing before and give much more performance, latency, and be much less privacy intrusive compared to the windows stock iso. At the end of the day, its the hardware which matters the most. If you're not able to buy new hardware this would be the best thing to do.
5.Why use Windows 10 LTSC?
1. No preinstalled apps ( Candy Crush Saga, Onenote for Windows 10, Groove music etc )
2. No forced updates
3. No CORTANA, Windows Store, Microsoft Edge
4. Extra performance
5. You don't need to spend hours debloating and disabling services.
6. Background apps won't run anymore since all preinstalled apps are removed
7. The iso is only 3.5gb compared to the Windows 10 stock iso which is 6GB.
6.Downloading Windows 10 LTSC
Download the iso from here -
The Microsoft Evaluation Center brings you full-featured Microsoft product evaluation software available for download or trial on Microsoft Azure.
7.Activating Windows 10 LTSC
After installing, since this edition of windows has a 90 day trial evaluation. We need to convert it to the full edition.
Now, download the registry file from the attachments and run it to remove the 90 day evaluation trial or you could open the registry editor and manually go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion . Now we need to change the value data of CompositionEditionID, EditionID to EnterpriseS and ProductName to Windows 10 Enterprise LTSC 2019 .
After changing all the values use the activator to permanently activate windows using HWID activation or KMS38.

8. For lazy people:-
You could alternatively download the preactivated Windows 10 LTSC iso made by me -
Google Drive :
Note: The iso is completely clean and has no viruses, trojans, ransomware. It's a waste of time for me and I'm really not gaining anything by adding viruses in the iso. The iso has been preactivated by MAS.
Btw, Windows 10 LTSC 20H2 will be coming out in the second half of 2021 .
