I feel so dumb... but how the heck do I download Windows 10 Home specificly?

Recommended Posts

Some background, my PC worked fine two days ago, It's a completely new build which I've now had for 2 - 3 weeks and it's worked flawlessly. Updated to the new October flashy Windows update and turned off my PC. Turned it on again yesterday after work and my multi-monitor setup wasn't working: "DisplayPort no signal" ...

Although my PC detected that my other monitor is connected, it just didn't activate the monitor, and all the display options FOR just that monitor were disabled. Also, trying to change the refresh rate from 60hz to 144hz on my main monitor wasn't working, it complained that I didn't have the right to access it.

I didn't at the time have a licensed Windows copy, so I used an unlicensed Pro version of Windows on my new PC, only because years ago when I switched motherboard on my at the time PC, but licensed Windows disappeared, and I refused to buy a new copy of Windows for that PC due to a motherboard swap.

Anyhow, I figured it was time to actually pay for another license now that I bought a new PC, so I bought a Windows 10 Home license yesterday. However, I couldn't activate my home license on my PC with unlicensed Windows Pro, which wasn't really a surprise. So I thought that I could just downgrade from Pro to Home on the same installation, (please correct me if I'm wrong!) which was impossible after some research, only way to make it happen is to cleanly install Windows 10 Home on your PC, so I figured I'd just wipe my hard drives and do a fresh clean install of Windows 10 Home since the PC is new anyways.
