    \$\begingroup\$ Delete the blind vias and add normal vias netted to the same places. \$\endgroup\$ – Andy aka Mar 15 at 11:30

It is quite simple:

  • Select the vias that you want to convert
  • Right click on it - Properties
  • Change the drill pair to Top Layer - Bottom Layer

You can also do the same operation from the PCB inspector
