Thread-topic: [CRTech] Windows 10 Pro

The upgrade from Home to Pro is as simple as either of these methods:


-clicking through the Windows Store and paying Microsoft $99.99 plus tax via credit card

-if you already have purchased a valid Windows 10 Pro license via other means, and have the product key, there's a spot for you to input that product key.


Once you've done either of those, I believe it just validates the purchase/key online, does a short software install/reconfiguration, and then reboots your machine.  Once that's done, you're running Pro, and everything is right where you left it.


You're not really reinstalling the OS… just adding features that are missing because of licensing.

I believe you just pay microsoft the difference. There is a home to pro upgrade.

I always prefer doing a clean install rather than an upgrade, but maybe that doesnt matter within editions of the same OS version.

Has anyone tried to upgrade a Windows 10 Home machine to a Windows 10 Pro successfully?

Looking into a new streaming machine and we found a great deal (Office Max going out of business here), but it comes pre-loaded with Windows 10 Home and we would have to upgrade it to Pro.
