Support can make the change for you. Also, you can try a few things to see if this is something quick and easy on your end first.


1) You can click the 3 vertical dots in the header at the right hand side and click "view in adwords".
You will be able to access your AdWords Express account in AdWords with the same log in info. You will have some work in front of you to rework your campaigns and put all of the many, many features of AdWords to work. Quality score is really important and it can only be at a good level by utilizing much of the features. 


2) Some accounts do not have the dots and cannot be manually migrated. In this case, you have to contact support and they will do it for you. 


If you never set up AdWords Express (but have visited it), your browser cache needs to be cleared, since the cookie (and history) and auto fill option is taking over. Once you clear your browser history, use this direct link to visit AdWords:


All the Best,
