    Hi everyone we run a small non-profit and recently got a some laptops in with Win10 Single User , is there a way I can convert it to our legitimate multiple licence , without formatting and re-installing ? Or is it the same as Win8 and you need to Redo it completely?

    Try this (no garantee) :
    1 click on action center
    2 all settings
    3 choose Update & security
    4 click Activation (on the left of the screen)
    5 change product key
    Enter your Pro product key. If it is accepted, your w10 home is upgraded to Pro in a few minuts.
    Good luck!

    What is a Single User Windows 10 (OEM), or you did it yourself?
    Or you're thinking about something else, or I do not understand anything.
    Or were you thinking Single-User Mode? or Single Language you mean?
    And what it means - convert. I want to convert laptop to super user server, is it possible?

    Sorry I meant Single Langauge , its a terrible name and I have no idea why MS thought it was a good idea to name it that >.>

    Anyhow , sadly it's not as simple as changing the keys , you instantly get a error message saying the other key can't be used , I also tried manually removing the key with SLMGR and adding the Mak key , sadly this doesn't work either.

    I am now trying to use the Windows 10 pro install CD to upgrade it and then using the MAK key :)
