    Did I just **** up my Windows 10 license?


    Hi, I've been doing some "tweaking" on both my pc and laptop these last days but I think that I screwed it up with the Windows 10 licenses.

    Basically I wanted to install Linux in both of them which I did sucessfully on my laptop and then I tried to make a dual boot on my pc but something went wrong and Windows got corrupted so I had to install it again. The problem comes when I decided to unlink both my Pc and laptop from my Microsoft account, thinking that in order to use any of their licenses I had to unlink them in order to "free" the license. So I did unlink them and now it seems like I **** up.

    I think that I can get the code for one of them, as it is a Windows 10 Education version that I got from my university, but I think I lost the one that came with my laptop (Home) which was the one I wanted to install in my pc. Am I wrong or is there any way to recover it?

    :)

    Windows 10 upgrade license

    Hello guys,

    I have 1 license of WIndows 8.1 FPP/retail license. I want to upgrade to WIndows 10, but I one thing is unclear to me.
    If I upgrade, will WIndows 10 license be retail or it will "turn" into some sort of OEM license?

    I ask this because I upgrade my PC, you know, more memory, replace HDD, and I intend to upgrade the MB and CPU to Kaby Lake platform sometime in the future, (and of course sell the replaced hardware)
    This thing is not clearly mentioned anywhere.

    Thank you.

    Pressing “Windows+Pause Break” (it’s up there next to scroll lock) opens the “System” Window.

    Windows 10: In the new version of Windows, Explorer has a section called Quick Access. This includes your frequent folders and recent files. Explorer defaults to opening this page when you open a new window. If you’d rather open the usual This PC, with links to your drives and library folders, follow these steps:

    • Open a new Explorer window.
    • Click View in the ribbon.
    • Click Options.
    • Under General, next to “Open File Explorer to:” choose “This PC.”
    • Click OK

    Windows 10 upgrade license

    The interesting question is that: the upgrade takes place before 29 of July. If I upgrade the PC (change the MB), and I transfer the Win 8.1 license to this new PC (cause 8.1 is retail FPP), will I be able to upgrade to Windows 10 for free? Or a upgrade license must be bought?
