    I hope to upgrade from Windows 10 Home to Pro. I bought a licence from the Microsoft store.

    If I install the licence, will I lose my files? Can I change my licence for a product key? Thank you.

  2. Win 10 Home to Pro upgrade

    How do I upgrade from Win 10 Home to Win 10 Pro with a digital Licence. The in structions say

    • If you have a digital license for Windows 10 Pro, and Windows 10 Home is currently activated on your device, select
      Go to Microsoft Store and you'll be prompted to upgrade to Windows 10 Pro for free.

    Fine, but how do I get a digital Licence for Win 10 PRo??

    Going to Microsoft Store via the upgrade with digital licence link, provides no opton for upgrading.

    Any solution??

    Get a Windows 10 licence for free if you register on Windows Insider

    If you want to upgrade from a Windows 8 license you must install W8, upgrade, get your W10 key and only after that you'll be able to do a clean install of W10.

    As for the status of the licences... MS hasn't been straigforward about that... they're using weird wording saying that W10 will remain "activated as long as the hardware is supported" which doesn't actually answer anything.

    Remember that for the W10 preview activation you need to install with a Microsoft Account that has been registered on the Windows Insider Program.

    How to transfer a Windows 10 Pro Upgrade Licence

    My Dell laptop has died. It was originally supplied with a Windows 8 Home OEM licence, upgraded to Windows 10 Home then I bought a license to upgrade to the Pro version.

    I need to buy a new laptop which will come with a Windows 10 Home licence. Can I reuse the Pro upgrade licence currently linked to the dead laptop for the new laptop and how do I transfer the licence? I can’t remember the T&Cs of the Pro upgrade licence.
