You can use Intune to upgrade your Windows 10 devices to another edition, so long as you have valid product key and your device is enrolled in Intune.

Microsoft has a list of all the supported upgrade paths in their documentation here.

In this example, I am going to upgrade from Windows 10 Pro to the Education edition.

We kick start the process with a quick check of the Windows 10 edition, yep it’s Win 10 Pro.
