    Update from Windows 10 Home S to Windows 10 Pro S


    I just bought a new laptop. My old laptop has Windows 10 Pro on it. The new one has Windows 10 Home S. I want to put Pro on my new laptop. Is that possible?

    Is it time for Windows 10 already?

    Again, for those that want the update reservation and you meet the requirements ---> Upgrade to Windows 10 for Free

    And, some info from the FAQ page:

    Also, some interesting info from the Specifications page:

    Microsoft to make Windows 10 updates mandatory

    Well, at the moment at least, you can choose to defer upgrades. Under Settings > Windows Updates > Advanced options you need to check the box labeled "Defer upgrades". What does that do? Good question. The answer I've found might illuminate it to a degree.

    I hear this only applies to Pro and Enterprise editions. But I can't verify that.

    Update from Windows 10 Home S to Windows 10 Pro S

    Windows 10 Tweaks

    Pressing “Windows+Pause Break” (it’s up there next to scroll lock) opens the “System” Window.

    Windows 10: In the new version of Windows, Explorer has a section called Quick Access. This includes your frequent folders and recent files. Explorer defaults to opening this page when you open a new window. If you’d rather open the usual This PC, with links to your drives and library folders, follow these steps:

    • Open a new Explorer window.
    • Click View in the ribbon.
    • Click Options.
    • Under General, next to “Open File Explorer to:” choose “This PC.”
    • Click OK
