    How do I activate my windows. I don't mind downgrading to home release, but would like to get rid of the activate windows prompt, especially since I own a license.

    Accidentally installed WIN 10 Pro when my license is for Home

    You will have to reinstall Windows again because you installed the pro. version when you should have installed the home version. You can download the ISO from the MS site. I highly suggest you do that. When you do that, no need to worry to accidentally install
    the pro. Your device came with Win. 10 or was it an upgrade?

    What Windows 10 version are you using?
