    Digital license linked to account in multiple computers


    Alright so i bought a new laptop, it doesnt come with windows installed so i have to do it my own, not a big deal.


    My question is: i do have another desktop PC with Windows 10; this Desktop had Windows 7 installed using a serial key that i borrowed from my dad's pc whch had 7 as well, and then uodated to 10 when it was free. In my desktop pc i signed in using my Microsoft account and now i have the difital license linked to it.


    So, can i sign in on windows on my new laptop and expect it to be activated or do i i ne another serial number?


    Last time i uograded my desktop components, the license went through the new hardware process and all that stuff, so i had some hiccups during rhe activation on windows 10.


    Thank you

    :)

    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?

    multiple windows license linking to account

    Hi Jirka

    Thanks for participating in Microsoft Community, I'm Independent Advisor, Skypper G

    I'm afraid there is not such MS Portal where you can check each MS Windows Licenses you already have.

    If you already have used a Microsoft Account to sign in to your activated Windows 10 Home or Pro PC, your MS Account will be automatically linked. You can use this MS account linked digital license to re-activate your Genuine Windows 10 device by running the
    Activation troubleshooter,

    Using the same Microsoft Account on multiple devices does not imply that the same digital license will work across all the Windows devices with same Microsoft Account. This is due to digital licenses are unique based on the hardware signatures of the Computer
    you are using.
