How to transfer/install windows on new ssd

Im upgrading to a new ssd as a boot drive and was curious on how i should go about transferring all my files and windows. should i do it through the windows installer or should i use a third party software to transfer everything from my hard drive to my ssd? also would it be possible to upgrade to windows 10 pro while doing this or would it force me to stay on home?

I used EaseUS partition master, the free version. The thing is, you must have the same or more storage available onto the SSD, as it clones the windows drive and everything on it. You can't JUST switch over windows, as easy as that would be.

both drives are 1 TB. so i cant transfer it through the windows installer even though it says you can keep the files when installing windows on a new hard drive?
