yes, actually I installed some software and don't want to lose time for installing windows and other programs. so I thought its possible to buy a key product and it's enough to save data. and so I found a page that gets some ways to solve but I am not sure about that. I'll be thankful if you could see this page and tell me your opinion.

Open the Settings app from your Start menu, select “Update & Security,” and select “Activation.” Click the “Change Product Key” button here. You'll be asked to enter a new product key. If you have a legitimate Windows 10 Enterprise product key, you can enter it now

Hello,
Careful here, yes you can enter a product key and it will appear to be a Standard Windows 10 installation. However the evaluation timer is still present and cannot be removed.
There is not way to convert the Evaluation to released media without this risk.
If the Evaluation timer is tripped, you may be required to reinstall the OS.
You are better off reinstalling now to prevent any unexpected interruptions that may happen at in opportune times.

Hi,
Do you want to convert Windows 10 Enterprise Evaluation to full Windows 10 Enterprise without losing data?
In fact when you sign up to the evaluation program you have to clean install at the end of the evaluation period. There is no safe way to change this.
Clean install the version of Windows you bought should be the best choice.

Hope above information can help you.
