Changing a Record's Record Type

There is a field [Object Name] Record Type you can change it. If this field is not showing you can add it after editing Layout(in the right side). Just add the record type field to Layout then you can easily update record type.

Just to add to the other answers, thought it should be mentioned that you must make sure the user has appropriate permissions for the record type. They can only change the object to one of the record types their profile has access to.
