    Can I transfer Windows 10 Pro license to another computer?

    If the license is retail, then yes you can transfer it.

    If the license is OEM, then no, you cannot.

    If the license came with your laptop (or you upgraded from the license that came with your laptop), then it is OEM and not transferable.

    How to transfer windows 10 license to a new computer?

    If its the free upgrade originated from an OEM Windows 7 or Windows 8 preinstalled license, it is still not transferrable, even though it says its retail in the command line using slmgr.vbs /dlv command.

    Only licenses upgraded from a retail Windows 8 or Windows 7 or full Windows 10 license.
