    Upgrade from Win8 to Win8 Pro

    Bear with me on this please.
    I have a Dell Inspiron 5520 Laptop which came preinstalled with Windows 8.
    I have subsequently upgraded to 8.1 and then 10.
    Win 10 didn't sit well with the hardware so I did a factory reset, went back to Win8 then upgraded again to 8.1

    I discovered this morning that I have a Win8 Pro upgrade licence so my question is, can I use this to upgrade my Win 8.1 to Win 8.1 Pro? If so, what's the procedure?
