At work I use Windows 11 Pro. My personal computer has Windows 11 Home. I am having trouble trying to work remotely from my home computer. Is it possible to buy an upgrade from Home to Professional?

@jmotbey  Hi

Yes, of course, you can buy Windows11 Pro in the Microsoft store, as a private person, but it is best to contact the administrator in the enterprise - explain your problem and perhaps you will get a license on preferential terms, e.g. education in some countries this solution is very beneficial.

Please search in your language

@jmotbey, you can upgrade from Windows 11 Home to Pro directly from Settings app > System > Activation. Under Activation, click on Open Store next to Upgrade in Microsoft app.

 

If your organization where you work have deployed Pro edition for your company employees, reach out to your IT admin to cross check and for instructions to upgrade.

 

In case if you got Pro edition product key, then you can use following video to upgrade yourself:


Hope this helps!

Thanks Kapril. This is where I am stuck at the moment. I followed your directions and found where to access the upgrade but because Windows 11 Home won't let me sign out of my peronal Microsoft account that was created when I bought the computer and into my Enterprise account I can't get the Microsoft website to acknowldge that I have a licence. I'll go back to our support and see if they are able to give me a product key to use.

Yes, you can buy a windows 10 Pro upgrade key from keyingo.com, then follow these steps :
Select Start > Settings > System > Activation.
Select Change product key, and then enter the 25-character Windows 11 Pro product key.
Select Next to start the upgrade to Windows 11 Pro.
During the upgrade ,it might need a few restart to complete the upgrade, all you need to do is wait patiently !
