Hi Chris,

Yes you can change from Windows 10 Pro Education to Windows 10 Pro edition, however you'll need to perform a clean install and a unique product key to install Windows 10 Pro edition. For more information, refer to this thread and check the answer of Andre Da Costa.

Do let us know if you have any other concerns.

If you have a product key for Windows 10 Pro, just enter the product key and it will change to Pro.

Click Start > Settings Update & security > Activation > Change the product key then enter the new product key then click Next to Activate

If you are unable to activate Windows 10 after all the above and you are certain you have the correct edition installed, then please attempt phone activation:

Activate Your Windows 10 License via Microsoft Chat Support
