How To: Upgrade Windows 10 Home to Windows 10 Pro

We've already heard about Windows 10 pricing for those that either choose not to upgrade or want to build a brand new PC.

It goes as follows:

  • Windows 10 Home is $119.99

  • Windows 10 Pro is $199.99

But, what if you want to move from the Home version to the Pro version?

With Windows 10 Microsoft is introducing the Windows 10 Pro Pack. The Pro Pack enables you to upgrade a Windows 10 Home system to Windows 10 Pro to take advantage of the increased features.

Available as a retail purchase online or in stores, the Windows 10 Pro Pack will cost $99.99.

As we get closer to the Windows 10 official launch, we should know more about the specific feature differences between Home and Pro, but will be similarly designed as the differences between Windows 7 and 8 Home and Windows 7 and 8 Pro.

Windows 10 Home is designed for users running PCs, tablets, and 2-in-1's, while Windows 10 Pro is architected with features essential for businesses including BitLocker, Domain Join, Azure Active Directory Join, Group Policy Management, and Windows Update for Business.
