Upgrade or Change Windows 10 Product Key

If you are trying to change (or upgrade) your Windows 10 edition, but are running into activation errors, here are the commands you can run in order to get activated:

1 - Open up your command prompt in elevated (Administrator) mode. Run these commands in this order, one at a time, WITHOUT the quotes! After each, wait a few seconds until you get a confirmed message before moving onto the next... okay here we go....

2 - "slmgr.vbs/upk" - this will remove the current product key.

3 - "slmgr.vbs/ipk YOUR PRODUCT KEY" - this will install the new product key, make sure you fill in YOUR PRODUCT KEY in the above area.
(Example: slmgr.vbs/ipk XXX32-XXX32-CCC32-BBB34-CCC87)

4 - "slmgr.vbs/ato" - this activates the product key.
