itjustme_tech

1. Create a text file on your desktop with the generic registration key for Windows 10 Pro(it is not totally necessary, but i found this to be easiest), namely VK7JG-NPHTM-C97JM-9MPGT-3V66T, and your new Windows 10 Pro registration key.

2. Once you have your text file, disable all network devices on your computer. The easiest way to do this is to right click on the windows icon in the lower left corner of the screen and select "Network Connections" and then right click on your ethernet connection and select "Disable". repeat this for your wireless connections.

3. Reboot your computer.

4. once your computer is back up and logged in, open the text file from step one and select the generic registration key, then press "CTRL-C" (or you can right click on the selected text and select "Copy").

5. Right click on the windows icon in the lower left corner of the screen and select "System" from the menu.

6. Once the system window opens, down at the bottom right, click on "Change Product Key"

7. Paste the generic registration key that you copied in step 4.

8. Click on the "Start Upgrade" button in the lower right corner. wait for the upgrade process to complete(your computer will reboot a couple of times during the process).

9. Once you have logged back into your computer, repeat step 5. This time, you should look near the top, and your "Windows Edition" should be "Windows 10 Pro".

10.  Open the text file from step one select your new Windows 10 Pro registration Key and copy it to the clipboard like you did in step 4.

11. Re-enable your network connections by following the instructions in step 2, but selecting "Enable" from the menu, instead of "Disable".

12. Repeat step 6. This time you should get a window with two buttons, one that says "Change Product Key" and the other says "Activate". click on the "Change Product Key" button.

13. Paste your new Windows 10 Pro registration Key into the  textbox, and click "Next".
