Thanks for your reply. You are correct. The upgrade for Home to Pro is quick and easy. Apparently no changes were made to any settings nor configuration, etc.
Thank you for confirming this. Your earlier observation, "Doing so essentially "unlocks" the Pro features that are already present; I'm not sure that anything new is downloaded from Microsoft during the upgrade," matches all information I have ever seen or heard. There are no separate Windows 10 ISO files for the various editions and it is the license key that determines which edition ends up being activated. It makes perfect sense that a license key upgrade would simply unlock features that were previously unavailable.

. . . the presumption of innocence, while essential in the legal realm, does not mean the elimination of common sense outside it. The willing suspension of disbelief has its limits, or should.
