My windows 10 edition changed all the sudden to "enterprise" and activation now lost too

Hello. My windows 10 edition out of nothing just changed itself to "enterprise". What? why? how is it even possible? I'm not crazy, I clearly remember I have installed pro. Also activation that is done by key (that is legitimate and was purchased from retail store) is now lost, windows shows itself as not activated! and now it doesn't wants to accept key too. How do I get it back to Pro without reinstalling? 

I don't even know what category should I select for this question

Hi rsod

This is a known bug in the Windows 10 Pro edition . ..

Open the Settings App (Gear icon on your Start Menu)

Go to Update and Security - Activation

Click Change Product key

Enter this generic product key: VK7JG-NPHTM-C97JM-9MPGT-3V66T

When prompted, click 'Activate Product'

If the above does not work first time, temporarily disconnect from the Internet and click 'Activate' again . ..

You must then Restart (not shut down) your PC to cause your Windows 10 Pro to activate

(Note the generic key will cause Enterprise to downgrade to the Pro edition, then your own legal licence will activate automatically)
