    activation of win 10 home with a win 10 pro key

    hello 10ers!

    i have tablet running win 10 and a licence for it too. win 10 home is preinstalled on my device. i just need to enter the code off my licence to activate it.

    however, i have a full licence on the way to me for win 10 pro.

    can i activate my win 10 home preinstall using a win 10 pro key and will it update to win 10 pro? or will my install only accept a home key?

    i was hoping to avoid deleting win 10 home, then fully reinstaling win 10 pro.

    Hi James, welcome to the Ten Forums.

    You can simply change the product key in Settings, replacing the Home key with the Pro one. See this tutorial for instructions: Product Key - Change in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums
