Other answer:

Me2:
If you're certain that Windows 10 Pro is installed, and the Certificate of Authenticity label affixed to the computer states "Windows 10 Home", contact the company that installed the operating system and have them send a Windows 10 Home DVD to you, so that you can install that version yourself.  They should, by rights, refund any labor charge for doing the installation since they installed the wrong version, and you will be correcting their error yourself.

Or, return the computer to have Windows 10 Home installed.  The Windows 10 Home DVD still must be provided to you, as is required by the license agreement.

Recheck your bill to verify that you were not charged for the more expensive Pro version.

Master Of Puppets:
You can try to use a random key, but it most likely won't work. MS isn't stupid. They have a huge list of blacklisted keys that won't work when you try to activate Windows.

Yes, you do miss out on a lot of stuff; primarily being able to use your computer after 30 days. If you don't activate Windows (involves obtaining a legit product key for the version of Windows you have), then it will either lock you out until you type in the correct one and activate, or run in reduced functionality mode where it will keep nagging you to activate. I don't know if it does this on W10, but I think on Windows Vista it logged you off every hour.

" Basically i ordered a computer to have windows 10 home but it has windows 10 pro "…

So it came with a preinstalled operating system ie Windows 10 pro ?

Window 10 pro is better than home , is it activated ? (Look in system properties) If YES keep it ..

Windows 10 pro V Windows 10 home http://www.pcadvisor.co.uk/feature/windo…

If Windows 10 pro is not Activated then install Windows 10 home and activate with your serial..
Running any addition of Windows longer than 30 days if not activated will go to lock down mode with limited function …
