    I believe you would need to do a fresh install to get Windows 10 home back.
    There are mentions of doing an in-place upgrade (see link below), but I have not tried this.

    As said, you need to do a fresh install. You would have to do that by booting from the recovery partition of your hard drive which should hopefully contain a default OS backup. That would mean you would restore Windows 10 Home back and all the apps it came from when it was released from the factory.
