    First, let me just say that you got what you ordered. Piracy is theft and that's what you intentionally tried. Personally I despise it, not to mention that our forum rules forbid all talk about piracy.

    That being said, and seeing you want to go back to legal Windows 10 Home, see this post: Windows 8.1 upgrade to Windows 10? - Windows 10 Forums

    The post shows you how to downgrade Windows edition. It is about downgrading Windows 8.1 Enterprise to Windows 8.1 Pro but should also work downgrading Windows 10 Pro to Home. Please notice if you try the trick you will do it at your own risk.

    In my opinion though you should simply start from scratch and re-install Windows 10 Home: Windows 10 - Clean Install - Windows 10 Forums

    Not a good idea to try and pirate a key, or mention it on a forum like this.

    Second, I agree with Kari. A clean install is no where near as complicated or time consuming as some make it seem. I would go that route and then you are sure everything is legit and activated properly.
