  1. Changing the email account associated with my Windows 8 OEM digital license (since upgraded...


    Just contacted tech support, and I was told that there is absolutely no way I can accomplish this, because according to her, it is in Microsoft's "terms and conditions".


    However, it just does not make sense to me, as I'm not even trying to cheat Microsoft by activating a new copy of Windows. All I want is just to tag the Windows license to a separate email account. Reason being, that email account has been around for a really long time. I would like to treat it as a legacy account, and just leave it for all the old emails from my childhood, but start afresh on a new account.


    In the event that the tech support is correct, is there any way that I can at least minimise the times I see my old email account? In other words, just use that account for activating my Windows only. If possible, I don't even want to use that account as an admin account, neither do I want to use it to log in to the computer or anything. Basically, out of sight, out of mind.


    Thanks in advance!

  2. Change email accnt associated with windows license.

    I have multiple computers with different windows licenses but have upgraded all of them to windows 10 now. I have an old email address associated with one of them and I want to change that account information for that license so that it uses the same cloud
    account as the two newer ones and I can then eliminate the old email address. How do I do this?

    Windows 10 OEM changed to digital license.

    I purchased a windows 10 gaming pc (preinstalled). So the version of windows is OEM. but now, on the activation menu in settings, it states that it's activated with digital license, linked to my Microsoft account. Does this mean I would be able to upgrade
    motherboard without having to purchase another copy of windows? Being able to activate it again as it states it's a digital license?

    Thanks, Josh.

    Link my digital license to more than one Microsoft account

    Hi,

    About your queries, kindly see the answers below:

    • Digital license key can only be link to one Microsoft account.
    • Logging out your Microsoft account will unlink your digital license key. Once your digital license key is associated with your Microsoft account, you may

      reactivate Windows 10 after a hardware change
      .
    • Anything that's related to your digital license.

    Don’t hesitate to inform us if you have any other concerns.
