    Upgrading new Win 10 system to PRO, moving Win 10 HOME licence


    My wife is about to get a Lenovo laptop with Win 10 home. All other systems in our home network run Pro, so I'm thinking I should use an extra Win 7 Pro key to upgrade that laptop. Will that approach still work?

    Also, I seem to recall reading somewhere that I should also "save off" the Win 10 Home license from the laptop so I can use it in the future. How would that work?



    :)

  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??

  3. upgrading from Win 10 home to Win 10 Pro

    I am having difficulty upgrade my laptop from Win 10 home to Win 10 pro because the Win 10 home licence is a digital licence and my new Win 10 pro licence is a new Product Key licence. I have no idea that they were different. The Win 10 Pro licence is
    a valid genuine key but i can not install it. What can i do?
