Windows Desktop 2 CPU max

Did anyone notice that somehow we lost the ability to have more than 2 cores.  Well, 2 cores and # of threads with a Windows 10 pro installation?  I can see the processors in the device manager, but task manager keeps saying 2 sockets, 2 VPUs.  I'm assuming I need to do something in the background, but sadly I'm a VMWare jockey in most places so still trying to learn.  Any suggestions?

I saw @ac9hp ran into a similar issue in his thread:

He adjusted the settings by tweaking the msconfig side of the house.  In my case, I need to adjust the configuration of the vim I think.

I had a similar thing happen (although I don't remember if I had created the antlet from a blank-kvm template or some other Win10 template).

I stopped the antlet, then edited the definition directly (from the antsle command line as root using virsh edit antletname).  In that file, you can find a section about CPUs and I was able to set it to 1 Socket, 1 Core, 8 threads (or whatever you need):

In my case, since I wanted 8 cores:

<vcpu placement='static'>8</vcpu>

Then further down a little, there's this section:

<cpu mode='custom' match='exact' check='partial'>

<topology sockets='1' cores='1' threads='8' />
