  1. Forgotten Microsoft Account with Windows 10 License Key


    Hello! I made a new account just to ask this question This time I secured my passwords. But I have an existing microsoft account which has a windows 10 retail key linked in it. It is still attached on the PC I am currently using, but unfortunately, I could not remember the password. I have tried everything with the microsoft recovery form https://account.live.com/ResetPassword.aspx but I I couldn't recover it because of insufficient details. I only had one password for that account and never changed it and that's the one I forgot. I am planning on reinstalling my OS that's why I'm try

    :)

    Loophole Lets You Freely Upgrade to Windows 10 After Offer Expiry

    If you upgrade your 7 install to 10, which is worth it IMHO, make sure you link to a Microsoft Account. Otherwise you might not be able to easily regain the key if they block using 7 keys in the future.

    You don't need to use the Microsoft account as your profile on so you can still bypass logging in at setup and creating a local account. All you gotta do to link your 10 account to your MS install (if you choose not to use your MS account as your profile), is to simply do the following:

    • Click Start
    • Click Settings
    • Click Update and Security
    • Click Activation
    • As or with Admin permissions, click Add Account
    • Login with MS Account credentials.
    Then you should see a message that reads:

  3. Installing Windows 10 using Windows 7 key

    Nope, you need to install Windows 10 first and make sure the Windows 7 key is transferred to your Windows account after you've installed Windows 10 (not quite sure how that works). I missed the last step and I could not activate Windows 10 after a re-install... Microsoft seem to have done everything they can to make it a PITA. Also, it's technically too late to do this now anyhow, as the upgrade offer has expired. But KMSPico works quite well...

    As for getting rid of Windows, delete the Windows folder.
