How do I upgrade from t2.micro to t2.small at the moment of expiration?

My AWS reserved instance t2.micro is going to expire. I decided to upgrade to t2.small, and have just bought a new reserved instance t2.small, as shown below.

enter image description here

Now, how do I switch from t2.micro to t2.small?

  • As I didn't change the instance type (T2), here is what I do.

    • Purchase a new reserved instance, t2.small
    • Stop instance (t2.micro)?Instances --> Actions --> Instance State --> Stop
    • Change Instance Type?Instances --> Instance Settings --> Change Instance Type --> t2.small
    • Start instance (t2.small)?Actions --> Instance State --> Start
