  3. New computer - transfer old key

    Hi,

    The Windows 10 Pro upgrade would be tied to the old computer and is not transferable. I believe it will be necessary to purchase Windows 10 Pro.

    Try the following steps:

    To upgrade, select the Start button, then select Settings >
    Update & security > Activation.

    • If you have a digital license for Windows 10 Pro, and Windows 10 Home is currently activated on your device, select
      Go to Store and you'll be prompted to upgrade to Windows 10 Pro for free.
    • If you have a digital license for Windows 10 Pro, but Windows 10 Home isn't activated on your device, select
      Troubleshoot, and then follow the steps to upgrade to Windows 10 Pro.
    • If you don't have a digital license for Windows 10 Pro, Windows 10 Pro is available for purchase from the Store.

    New Computer: Upgrading from Windows 10 Home to Pro

    Mom is getting a new computer. Although the computer will have Windows 10 Home preinstalled, we want the Pro version.

    Are the steps correct to upgrade to Windows 10 Pro?

    • Click Start > Settings > Update & security > Activation > Go to store > make your purchase, follow the on screen instructions and within 5 to 10 minutes you will be upgraded to Windows 10 Pro.

    We are in Canada. I am guessing that the upgrade price is close to US$100 converted to Canadian dollars?
