How to Buy Windows 10
Pro with a License or
Product Key

In 2015, Microsoft released Windows 10, offering it to Windows users free of charge as a download to users who were eligible. Users could upgrade to Windows 10 Pro, which offers a few more features. If you have a copy of Windows 10, you can upgrade with the license or product key that came with your free version of Windows 10. Finding that license or product key is not as easy as you think, though, because upgrades to Windows 10 did not come with a license or product key by email or on a package since the OS was installed by download through a Microsoft run process. The license or product key is actually embedded in the system with the free download."

Why Should You Upgrade to Windows 10 Pro?

There’s a good reason to upgrade. Windows 10 Pro offers incredible advances that make your business easier and safer to run. With this OS, you receive BitLocker and BitLocker to Go, which can put your whole system on lockdown if your device is lost or stolen, thus protecting all your data. Your Office files will be uploaded automatically to the cloud, thus saving you from data loss worries and allowing you to access all your data everywhere.

Further, with Remote Desktop, you can have Windows 10 Pro with you anywhere in the world you can get internet. You’ll also find other significant advantages, such as Microsoft’s new browser, Edge, which is a faster and safer way to browse the internet. Windows Hello allows for facial and fingerprint recognition and speeds up your sign in.

Finally, you’ll get all the advantages of Microsoft’s AI Cortana, who can assist you with everything from playing music to searching online for essential data.

Before You Upgrade

Check that your computer meets the system requirements: Before you do any shopping, make sure your computer is capable of handling Windows 10 Pro. Windows 10 Pro comes in two different versions: 32-bit and 64-bit. The Windows 10 Pro 32-bit is standard and covers most users’ needs, but if you will be working with particularly large files that use complicated data and equations, or else you’ll be working with large video clips and animations, you might probably want to use the 64-bit version. The difference between the two comes down to processing power and storage, so obvious the Windows 10 Pro 64-bit version takes more of both.

Minimum system requirements for Windows 10 Pro are:

Windows 8.1 is definitely faster than Windows 7. It boots quickly, and Explorer can run easily with multiple tabs open. The speed comes from adjustments Microsoft made to increase performance through some redesign. That redesign is somewhat controversial, as Windows 8.1 does not look like older versions of Windows, even though a lot of the same features are still in place, in particular the START button. The system is more secure, with improvements like UEFI making it harder for malware to destroy your bootloader. There are improvements in the search feature, which connects directly to Bing to bring you the best results quickly. The improvements in the Windows App store make it easier to find the apps you need to get the most out of Windows.

  • Processor: 1 gigahertz (GHz) or faster processor
  • RAM: 1 gigabyte (GB) of RAM for the 32-bit version or 2 GB for the 64-bit version
  • Hard disk space: 16 GB for the 32-bit version or 20 GB for the 64-bit version
  • Graphics card: DirectX 9 or later with WDDM 1.0 driver
  • Display: 800x600

As long as your computer has at these specifications, you are able to use Windows 10 Pro. Find out if you have a license or a product key. There are two ways to upgrade to Windows 10 Pro: a license or a product key. You’ll have a license if Windows 10 Pro has already been installed and Windows 10 is already activated on your computer. This can occur when you’ve downloaded directly from the Microsoft Store. Otherwise, if you would rather purchase Windows 10 Pro at a discount price outside of the Microsoft Store, you’ll have to make a new installation, and you will receive a product key (which is a 25-digit code you will need to input later).
