Recently, I had to put into use a computer that was delivered with Windows 11 Home version by default. Since I need the professional version in the environment where I need to use it, I decided to upgrade it.
Once you have purchased the product key, the easiest method is to go to Settings > System > Activation and enter the Pro version key in the
Change product key section.
Unfortunately, although I have used this method before on other computers, this time I received information that the product key provided cannot be used to upgrade the currently installed system.
I decided to check whether I would be able to upgrade Windows 11 from Home to Pro using the method of updating Windows 10 Home to Pro I described earlier.
If you have updated to Windows 11 from Windows 10, the below steps will help you to clean leftovers in your system and make it close enough to the performance known from the 10th edition.
If you planning (or did) to install Windows 11 from an official ISO, make sure that you using always the latest one. At the time of writing this text, the ISO available is the 2nd since the system has been presented to the world (64v1).
Half jokingly, half seriously. I recently discovered what was eating up my disk space on my work computer.
As announced, on October 5, 2021 (to be more precise, at the end of October 4), Microsoft officially presented the final version of Windows 11.
Recently I had the opportunity to transfer data from one computer to another. Since the first one was already running Windows 10 in the latest version and everything worked perfectly (only the hardware was a bit lagging behind), I decided to clone the disk from the first one to the second one.
dd as a method (a little slow but effective) I ran the same system on the new hardware, with one difference. The target hardware was licensed with Windows 10 Pro compared to the old hardware with Windows 10 Home.
Therefore, I decided to do an upgrade.
How to download an ISO image directly from Microsoft servers, officially, without risk and unnecessary fiddling.
Recently I have been looking for a simple and easy method to convert ringtone or a song from MP3 to M4R, a ringtone format used widely in iPhones.
The conversion from MP3 to M4A and later change of file extension to M4R is not something difficult for myself, however less experienced users this can be challenging.
Because of that, using various methods I decided to prepare something, that till be working on just dropping MP3 file and double-click on specified file to ret in short moment ready ringtone for use on our phone.
I have prepared couple batch files and used for this purpose FFmpeg converter. This is the final product from my work.
