I currently have two computers - both were running Windows 10 Home licenses. But I did recently upgrade one of them to Pro because I used my employer's volume license (don't worry - I got permission). But for circumstances I can't get into, I need to downgrade the machine with the Pro version and add it to the other one. How can I do that?

    If I understand you want to move the pro version to the other computer? Why not just leave it where it is unless the other computer in question is the companies property and they are expecting to see the pro license on it. It get's real tricky moving Microsoft program licenses around,

    If you have a full retail copy of Windows 10, you can transfer it as many times as you want. As you performed upgrade to windows 10 pro pack from Windows 10 Home (as I understood correctly), you can transfer it using digital licensing procedure. This is a recommended procedure, because of pro pack, is a retail license attached to the Microsoft account used to purchase it. Here is a link for volume licensing: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/Licensing/product-licensing/windows10.aspx
