how to switch from office 365 personal plan to purchased license

Recently I set up a new windows 10 computer and installed office 2010, which is what I was using previously on the computer I am replacing.  

Outlook kept crashing/locking up with the profile that was using IMAP to gmail.

I have an office365 account and for $99 a year it gives me 5 installations, so I used one to test whether or not outlook would crash and it hasn't.

For reasons that are too complicated to explain, I don't want one of my 5 installations on that computer. I'd like to purchase a license ($219 at the big box store or directly from MS) and apply that license office on that computer.

I'd like to know if it's possible to do without uninstalling/reinstalling office completely.

Is there a way to do this?

Go to Office Account and remove the computer in question from the subscription. You can do this.

Then purchase your Office Product, uninstall the subscription product and install the purchased product. That will work.

You will have to reinstall as it's a different SKU.
