  1. Issue with Activating Windows 10 Education Edition


    I am trying to upgrade my current copy of Windows 10 Home edition to Windows 10 Education edition, but am unable to do so. I have a validated product key for the Education edition provided by my school through OnTheHub.


    When I go to the "Change product key" setting under Activation in Update & Security and enter the correct key, I receive this window:

    When I hit start, I receive this error:

  2. Windows Education Issue

    Are you have Windows 10 Education installed?

    To find out if you have the right edition installed:

    Click Start > Settings > Update & security > Activation > Edition.

    If you don't have the right edition installed, you will need to download and install it.

    Step 1:

    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: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/vlacademicISO

  3. Change from Windows 10 Education edition to Windows 10 Professional

    Windows 10 Education is an academic edition of Windows 10 used in schools. Features like Cortana are removed because of the environment it is used in.

    Windows 10 Pro Education builds on the commercial version of Windows 10 Pro and provides important management controls needed in schools. Windows 10 Pro Education is effectively a variant of Windows 10 Pro that provides education-specific default settings,
    including the removal of Cortana1. These default settings disable tips, tricks and suggestions & Windows Store suggestions.

    Windows 10 editions for education customers

    If you want to downgrade to the Windows 10 Pro edition, you will need to perform a clean install and you will need a unique product key to install it. The Windows 10 Pro Edu or Windows 10 Education key will not activate Windows 10 Pro.

    If you don't have a license for Windows 10 Pro, you will either need to request it from the institution you got Windows 10 Education; or you will have to purchase a license for Pro, then perform a clean install.

    Step 1: Buy Windows 10 Home/Pro

    Step 2: How to: Perform a clean install of Windows 10

  4. Issue with Activating Windows 10 Education Edition

    Activate Windows Home Edition from Educational Edition.

    Since the beginning of this school year, I was given an educational activation key for windows 10. I installed it, and it has been causing some problems with updates and I find Education to be very restrictive. So I entered my old windows 10 activation
    key and it says it cannot use it. What am I supposed to do? Microsoft will not let me use my Windows 10 home edition key and I am very frustrated.
