  • Got a Windows 7 Ultimate key lying around?

    Ed Bott reports that you can use a Win 7 pro or ultimate key to upgrade your Windows 10 home to pro. I still recommend upgrading from Home to Pro because it exposes a lot more ways to defer updates. As we know the Targetreleaseversion registry key works with Windows 10 Home as well as pro, but I’m still a fan of having more ability to control updates, not less.

    I think I just saw one of those plastic cases the other day buried in a box upstairs. You should see the cables and boxes I have and keep because you just never know….clearly I was anticipating a need for these keys
