How to Upgrade From Windows 8 to Windows 8 Pro

I want to upgrade from Windows 8 to Windows 8 Pro.  I'm not sure how to do that but I would like to do that asap.  I also have already upgraded to Windows 8.1.  Thanks!

Go to Windows Anytime Upgrade (Control Panel) and order Pro there. Pay for it, get the license key and apply the license key. That is the easiest way.

[Assuming you wish to upgrade to Windows 8.1 Pro] Go to Action Center (or Control Panel), then Windows Update, then Add features to Windows 8.1.

You must go to Anytime Upgrade first and purchase the upgrade as I noted above. It is not a free feature you can add.

Windows 8 Home upgrades to Windows 8.1 Home and Pro is additional.

Add features to Windows 8.1 is not a free feature. You must buy a key first (It's the new name for Windows Anytime Upgrade).

Please read the Microsoft documentation (FAQ, Frequently Asked Questions) about the "Add features to Windows 8" (or 8.1) here:

Sorry, with respect, it's unclear (to me) after re-reading this thread. (I miss obvious things sometimes.)  :-(

Regards.
