Where does one buy a Win 10 Pro upgrade from Win 10 Home?

It seems any upgrade I find is from Win 7 or 8(.1).
 
I already installed the "free" Win 10 Home (from Win 7 Home) but I want to go Pro.
 
Anyone know where I can get such an upgrade?

I think you need to get to 100000 posts first.
 
Or, I don't think there is an upgrade path - at least it wasn't obvious on the microsoft store page.  I think you have to buy the pro version.

Just wondering why you'd want the Pro version? That's business/corporate focused. More stuff to take away more CPU cycles. I am not aware of anything that improves audio performance.

It's not for a DAW.

Hard to believe that someone here would have a non-DAW computer, huh?

Microsoft Store has the upgrade license and product key for $99.00 acessible from Win 10 home installations.

When I upgraded I saw at lot of probably dodgy cheap keys being sold, even via Amazon & Co (some users claimed the received key works, some other say it didn't) ... which made me wonder how Amazon/Microsoft allow that ...
 
Anyway, I needed a fast & definite & of course legal way to upgrade so I stopped researching and ended up buying from microsoft store app but not getting the $99 upgrade (was more like double which may just be the European price, maybe a payback for all the hard time the EU has given MS) ... enter credit card, the next moment your machine is win10 pro ...

That's not to hard to believe .On my non DAW  the updates were happening too fast for me so I went back to this.
