  1. Changing Microsoft License Keys from Educational to Home


    I have two PCs, and I have just built a new PC with Windows 10 Education License on it that I got from the school that I attend. My previous computer has Windows 10 Home that I purchases from Microsoft. I decided that I want to have the Home license on my new PC and the Education License on my old PC. Is there any way to change the License keys on the computers with out doing a fresh install on both the PCs? Primarily, can I change the educational License on the new PC to a Home version without having to reset and do a fresh install?

    :)

  2. How to transfer a Educational WIN10 License?

    Download Windows 10 Education, reinstall it then reactivate using the product key you got from the Store.

    Download Windows 10 Education ISO files

    If you attend a college or university, your institution might provide you with the Education edition of Windows 10. If you are only provided with a license (product key), you can download the .ISO file from the Microsoft Download Academic Products website.

    Go to the following link: Download Windows 10 Academic ISO

    Windows 10 Education Pro

    I've not had an opportunity to test Pro Education edition yet but I am running normal Education on a Hyper-V virtual machine and on dual boot with Pro on a laptop. Basically Education is exactly as Enterprise, meant for domain or Azure AD use. Main differences when compared to Pro are missing Cortana and no possibility to use Microsoft account as initial user account when setting up Windows, although when selecting initial user as local domain user a normal local account will be created which can then be switched to a Microsoft account instead of joining a domain.

    Native Windows apps in Windows 10 Education edition are the same than in Pro edition, Cortana being the only exception.

    If you already have setup Windows 10 Pro on your machines with a customised image I can see no benefits in doing the job again deploying an almost similar OS. This is of course only my personal subjective opinion based on what I know at the moment; I have no knowledge or insight about what additional features (see highlighted part in quote below) Pro Education might be and if they would be reason enough to upgrade to Pro Education.
