    Deactivate Windows 10 License on Computer I Already Dissassembled


    I bought a license for Windows 10 for my previous computer, and didn't think about deactivation before I disassembled it and built my new computer.


    Now while trying to activate Windows 10 on my new computer, I attempted to use the option to tell it I have new hardware, and it's not allowing me. From what I've seen, it's because the previous license was not deactivated.


    How can I deactivate the license so I can use it on my new computer without access to my old computer?


    Thanks for any assistance.

    :)

  2. How do you deactivate Windows 10 license on one computer and then install it on another?

    I am getting rid of the computer that has a full version of Windows 10 home installed on it. I want to use that license on a different computer. I cannot find within the Microsoft account a listing of the computers that have licenses and how I can deactivate
    the old computer.
