I had recently ordered a HP Notebook model 15-AC167TU 15.6-inch Laptop (Celeron N3050/2GB/500GB/Windows 10/Integrated Graphics) online from Amazon.in website.
The OS type is mentioned as Windows 10.
Is it "Windows 10 Home" or "Windows 10 Professional".
Please clarify the OS type for this model HP 15-AC167TU 15.6-inch Laptop .
If its "Windows 10 Home" , then can I upgrade it to "Windows 10 Professional" for free ? Otherwise how much I need to pay in USD or Indian rupees, as the Notebook is purchased from India.
thanks in advance!

From the official specs for that model:
Windows 10 Home (64-bit)
No, Windows 10 Pro would be a paid upgrade. On the settings/update and security/activation page will be a link to contact Microsoft about upgrading to Pro. I don't know what that costs in India, but its $99 US here in the States:
Before you do that I would be sure you really need the Pro version. Many people do not; some do. You are just not going to find vendors including Windows 10 Pro in laptops selling for about $325 US.
