Downgrade from pro to home

Recommended Posts

I bought a new computer and they had Windows 10 Pro, but the key I bought was for Windows 10 home. I followed two similar sets of instructions that do the regedit, but each time I go to activate my home version it tells me my key is invalid. Help?

Open Registry Editor(WIN + R, type regedit, hit Enter)
Browse to key HKEY_Local Machine > Software > Microsoft > Windows NT > CurrentVersion.
Change EditionID to Home (double click EditionID, change value, click OK). 
Change ProductName to Windows 10 Home.
