    Should I buy Windows 10 Home or Pro?

    Pro.

    I have Home at work. Turns out looking at all these "smart" bloggers who build lists explaining stuff to us, like the many differences between home vs pro, it turns out....there is no difference.

    Ohhh! W8. Until you need to edit the core features ,and then googling , turns out Home has many limitations.

    Don't look at it as Pro...as in Professional . I think it's a mistake. Just look at it as a full product.
    So the question is, do you want the entire Windows, or just 70% of it ?

    step. After the Operating System is installed, suggest you to activate by phone by following the steps below:

    • Press “Windows key + R” and type “slui 4” and press Enter.

    Windows 10 Home to Pro

    Its seems your computer might have been inadvertently been upgraded to Windows 10 Pro.

    The copy of Windows 10 you download and upgrade from will correspond with the edition of Windows you have installed, if it does not, this is why you might be experiencing problems activating:

    • Windows 7 Starter, Home Basic, Home Premium, Windows 8.0 Core, Windows 8.1 Core will install Windows 10 Home

    • Windows 7 Professional, Windows 7 Ultimate, Windows 8.0 Pro, Windows 8.1 Pro will installWindows 10 Pro

    To find out if you have the right edition installed:

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

    If the edition of Windows 10 installed does not correspond with the edition of Windows 7 or Windows 8 you were previously running, then you need to reinstall the right edition.

    If the wrong edition is installed, you will have to perform a clean install of Windows 10 Home.

    Step 1: download, create a bootable copy:

    Step 2: perform a custom install:
