    Downgrading Windows 10 enterprise to pro


    is it possible to downgrade Windows 10 enterprise to pro? At the moment i have enterprise but i have the activate windows popup in the bottom left corner of my screen. If i got a windows 10 pro key would i be able to activate windows and get rid of the popup? would doing so erase all of my files?

    You cannot downgrade.
    You will have to wipe your current system after backing up personal files
    Then you will need to either upgrade for free from a legal activated qualifying Operating system or purchase a copy of Windows 10 Pro

    Clearly if you reinstall windows 10 pro, and key is not in use elsewhere.

    I'm afraid the answer does not change no matter how many times you ask. As barman58 says you have to reinstall it.

    Yes, but you can create it on this pc as well. You can wipe this pc as part of the install.
