Upgrade from Windows 11 Home to Windows 11 Pro

Regular Contributor

I have Windows 11 Home but want to switch to Windows 11 Pro. I followed the instructions to buy Windows 11 Pro from the Store, but after the purchase was completed I was not prompted to make the upgrade. There is no product key as well. How can I upgrade to Windows 11 Pro?

Did you followed steps in Microsoft Store?
Check your email and Junk mail and see if there is any email there?
You may find it under order history, have a look at:
There is no product key, neither in Junk email, nor in Order history or elsewhere.

You can try upgrading using generic product key for Pro edition: VK7JG-NPHTM-C97JM-9MPGT-3V66T. At step 4 of this guide, you've to enter this generic product key:

The generic key will only convert your Windows 11 to Pro edition, it won't activate. Since you already bought Pro upgrade, you system will be automatically activated with Pro edition, as you connect to the Internet.
