Did your PC include Windows 11 Home and you're thinking about moving up to Professional? This is a simple upgrade from Home to Professional which will then offer you the additional Professional features for a competitive price. To upgrade, it's a case of adding your new Professional license to "Change Product Key" in your existing Windows 11 Home setup. Windows will then update, reboot, and you'll have a fully activated Windows 11 Professional.
Windows 11 Professional includes features of Windows 11 Home, plus important business functionality for encryption, remote log-in, creating virtual machines, and more. Get fast start-ups, a familiar yet expanded Start menu, and great new ways to get stuff done, plus innovative features like an all-new browser built for online action and Cortana, the more personal digital assistant.
What Windows 11 Professional enables you to quickly connect to another 'domain', whether this is your business or school to use network files, servers, printers, and more. Ideal for taking your work on the road when you still need access to the office network. Professional also gets additional security with BitLocker to help protect your data with encryption and security management. Best of all, create and host virtual machines using Hyper-V, which is ideal for testing new software or, if you're a developer, how your software performs on a brand new fresh OS.
A Windows 11 Professional upgrade can be used to upgrade from an activated Windows 11 Home.
Includes a 1-PC upgrade license.
