I have Windows 10 on a PC and am interested in upgrading to the Pro version as it has some features I can use.
I have an unused Windows 8.1 Pro Serial Number/License so I’m wondering if I can use that serial number to do an in place upgrade without having to do a fresh install of Windows 10 Pro!
I say this because even though the free upgrade to 10 offer for the general public has expired seemingly you can still use a Windows 8.1 key to authorise a fresh installation of Windows 10. I am aware of the workaround for assistive technologies users and don’t want to take that route.
As it’s a new tablet and it has all the Dell drivers installed I’d rather not do a fresh install of Windows 10 Pro as that can be time consuming especially with the drivers.
So is it possible for me to do an in-place upgrade to Pro without doing a fresh install with my 8.1 key? I’m talking about what used to be called and maybe still is an Anytime Upgrade which just unlocks the extra features without needing a fresh install.
