Want to move to higher speed by investing in a more complete edition of Windows 7? Professional edition to Integrale edition, Family to Professional... all scenarii are possible provided you purchase the required serial key. Only 10 minutes are enough to perform the upgrade.
From start Menu, search Express Upgrade or go through the Control Panel.
An assistant then launches and offers you 2 upgrade methods:
- Log in to choose the Windows 7 edition that best suits you : in this case, you have no idea the benefits of an upgrade. So you didn't make your purchase, or maybe even your choice when it comes to publishing. Comparison tables should help you;
- Enter an upgrade key : have you ever got a serial key? In this case, all you have to do is grasp it and the upgrade process will then begin;
In this tutorial, we will opt for the second solution and we will upgrade the Professional edition to the Integrale.
Start by entering your serial key. Don't worry about capital letters or dashes because everything is handled automatically.
To continue, do Next. Windows now checks the validity of the key.
Once this famous serial key has been verified, click on Next then accept the license agreement.
So click on the button I accept to go to the last step of the wizard.
Here you are ready to click on Upgrade. As shown on the screen, the computer will restart several times: be sure to close all open apps to avoid losing your job.
Wait about ten minutes and click the button Close when Windows has restarted.
Well done! You have just made a change to the Windows 7 edition.
It is now impossible to return to the previous edition but you can always upgrade to a higher edition as long as you are not on Windows 7 Integrale. I recommend professional edition that brings real new features for the user whose XP Mode.
