  1. How to recover Windows 10 home retail key after upgrading to Windows 10 pro?


    I recently purchased and freshly installed Windows 10 Pro on my pc that had Windows 10 home. I completely forgot to write down the old Windows 10 home product key before formatting the HDD. Is there anyway to recover my Windows 10 home key?

    :)

    Windows 10 Release Date Announced

    Windows 10 Home will be $119, Pro $199.

    Microsoft: Windows 10 Home costs $119, Pro costs $199



    Which is good news actually, because Windows 8.1 is loads cheaper than previous versions (retail licensing at Windows 7 OEM prices). And it sort of puts a huge hole in the Windows subscription theory.

    I read through most of that thread and it seems you have to jump through windows insider hoops. Is there a Retail Windows 10 x64 PRO ISO I can download directly from microsoft that my windows 8 key will work with?
