    Free upgraded PC activation and license


    I have a old pc that I upgraded to windows 10 during free upgrade period. If I give my pc to a friend or family member, will the windows 10 license still be valid as it is digitally linked to my Microsoft account?

    :)

  3. How to activate Windows 10 after upgrading the PC?

    Hello, thanks for the quick response Chris.



    As I mentioned in the previous post, if you have product key with a genuine copy of previous Windows version, I suggest you to use the same to activate Windows 10 copy on your computer.



    Follow the steps below to check if the Product key is available on your PC.



    • Press Windows logo + X keys on the keyboard and select
      Control panel from the context menu.
    • Select Large icons from the view by option located at the top left corner of the window and select
      System.
    • From the window under Windows activation, note down the product key displayed in-front of
      Product ID.
    • Use the Product ID to activate Windows 10.


    You can also get your copy of Windows 10 activated through phone. Refer to the below link for
    Microsoft Volume Licensing Activation Centers worldwide telephone numbers:

    https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/licensing/existing-customer/activation-centers.aspx



    Write to us with the status of the issue for further assistance. Your reply is most important for us to ensure we assist you accordingly.



    Thank you.

    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?
