    How can I get the copy of Windows 10 that is currently linked to my Microsoft account...


    As the title states, I am having trouble reactivating my copy of Windows 10 Home on my PC after swapping the CPU, motherboard, and hard drive. Everything ran fine on my original setup, but then I swapped out those 3 parts and reinstalled+reactivated Windows using my product key. The new installation worked fine as well, but I realized afterward that I had installed Windows to the wrong drive, so I formatted that drive and reinstalled again on the right one. This time, however, I was unable to reactivate Windows, despite signing in with my Microsoft account to which my copy of Windows 10 is li

    Windows 10 Tweaks

    As you may already know, Windows 10 (as well as Windows 8) allow you to log in with a valid Microsoft account, instead of creating a local account that only works on your machine. However, you may prefer to keep a local account for privacy reasons. If you do, though, some Windows 10 features—like Cortana—may not work. Despite the default behavior, the Windows 10 Store is not one of them. You can still log in to your Microsoft account for just the Store without switching to a full Microsoft account. The process, however, is not terribly obvious. To do so, follow these steps:

    • Launch the Store from your Start menu.
    • Click the user icon next to the search box.
    • Click “Sign-in” from the menu that appears.
    • Choose “Microsoft account” and log in like normal.
    • When the “Make it yours” box appears do not enter your password. Instead, click “Sign in to just this app instead.”

    Strange Windows 10 User Account issue.

    Unfortunately I had done those steps numerous reboots, it just, reappears for no good reason. The base account isn't even a Microsoft account, it's a local account.

    I haven't quite tried the built in administrator account on W10, but so far in my experience on my own computer, the built in account seemed to have absolutely no more control than I did on my own.

    It's just strange, I go in, it warns me twice about deleting the account, then it's gone. Reboot, and it's back?

    EDIT: Just to specify, both command line and Netplwiz both say only HIS account exists on the computer, it doesn't list this rogue account. This is what I meant in my first post about the fact that even Windows doesn't seem to believe it exists, HALF the time. *Frown How can I get the copy of Windows 10 that is currently linked to my Microsoft account... :(

    Link a Microsoft Account to a Windows 10 license

    Hello Steve, and welcome to Ten Forums. How can I get the copy of Windows 10 that is currently linked to my Microsoft account... :)

    What build of Windows 10 do you currently have installed?

    *Arrow https://www.tenforums.com/tutorials/2...mber-find.html

    Starting in build 14371, if you see this part highlighted in yellow below in Settings -> Update & security -> Activation from step 7 in the tutorial posted above, then the PC's digital license is linked to your MSA.
