Windows 10: Upgrading from Windows 10 s on Surface Pro? Solved

    Upgrading from Windows 10 s on Surface Pro?


    I have the latest Surface Pro - i5, 8g ram - and did not realize that it came with a sort of condensed version of Windows 10. I can get by with this but would much prefer to upgrade. Thankfully there is some sort of mysterious offer out there to upgrade to the proper Windows 10 for free, so my question would be thus....

    How do I access that free offer, and is it something I should do on a device that's purportedly designed to accommodate 10s?
