The edition of Windows 10 can be changed by entering a new product key, for example, when upgrading from Windows 10 Home to Windows 10 Pro. The product key can be obtained by purchasing a retail kit from a store or online. When the new product key is entered, the system is reactivated with the new product key.

If the system does not have a DPK in the BIOS, a product key can be entered manually and Windows 10 will use that key to activate. Activation is automatic when connecting to the Internet if the user has already entered the product key.

In rare cases, it is possible to connect a system with a valid DPK to the Internet, but not activate Windows. Connecting to the Internet will remove the “delayed activation” of Windows and wait for it to activate. The system will display a light gray message in the lower right corner of the desktop, indicating that Windows is not activated. In addition, several personalization features are disabled, for example, the user cannot change the desktop background. The easiest solution is to connect the system to the Internet, make sure you have access to Microsoft and allow the system to become active.
