    Default Upgrade w10 Home to Professional.

    I have just discovered that you can upgrade for free (see the link below). You need to show your current Product key when requested. Process is simple and you get the upgrade like the usual updates from MS.

    Your current key will be changed and I used Lazesoft's Windows Keyfinder to see what the new key is. Just thought someone might be interested.

    That link says that you need to have a Pro digital license first.

    Yes I see that but I only had the Win10 home product key and it worked for me.

    The upgrade from home to pro has NEVER been free . You have to pay for it.
    MS dont give away keys either

    I very much doubt he got a free upgrade to Pro
    Run Winver & see what you actually have

    MS don't give away upgrades from home to Pro. If the PC had pro on at one stage then home was installed, then it would upgrade Ok, since the hardware has a digital license for the Pro already.

    What happens with a LOT of these so called free upgrades is a KMS key is used, sure its free, BUT its limited in the amount of time you can use it before you need to actually activate with a real Pro Key or connect to a KMS server.
    Update / Upgrades = Replace old bugs with new ones.
