Cannot Activate Windows

Cannot Activate Windows. Followed Windows instructions to reinstall Windows 10 Pro on 64-bit PC. Windows reinstalled, but it was Windows Enterprises that was reinstalled. Message appeared that Windows was not activated with error code 0xC004F213. Messages appeared to contact System Administrator. Well, I am the only one who uses this PC and the only one who uses Office 365, so I am the System Administrator. Need help to activate Windows.

    The error code 0xC004F213 means there is no product key in the system, you have to navigate to Settings and go under Update & Security and click on Activation and then select Change product key and then enter your product key.

    A tech support person gave me a digital license activation number, so my Windows 10 Pro is activated.
