    Can I link my digital license to a different microsoft account?


    Hi,

    I just got a new laptop with windows 10 preinstalled. Activating it I accidentally created a new microsoft account instead of using my existing one. So, now my digital license is linked to this new account. Is it possible to unlink the license and then link to the correct account?

    Cheers,

    I

    :)

    Link Microsoft Account to Windows 10 Digital License


    Hey, I have a question.
    Do you think the digital license is saved on my MSA after i changed back to my local account?

    What I mean by that:
    I Added MSA to my Windows 10 and it said in Activation tab "Windows is activated with a digital license linked to your Microsoft account", and my PC was in device list of my MSA.
    But I don't like the fact that I have to type in password every time I boot up. It's my private PC, I don't need password, I never had. So I switched back to my Local account. But now it's back to "Windows is activated with a digital license" only, and the PC is also gone from the device list on my MSA account.
    Do you think it actually unlinked the license, or maybe because I logged in once, it saved anyway, and I will be good with activating in the future on a changed machine?

    Link Microsoft Account to Windows 10 Digital License  


    Hello MCardona81, Can I link my digital license to a different microsoft account? :)

    The digital license will automatically be linked when you sign in to Windows 10 with your Microsoft account.

    At step 2, what does it show for you in Activation on the right side?
