  1. How to remove a license / deactivate windows on a computer if the same license used more...


    Hello,


    I have a Windows 10 laptop and then bought a desktop PC. I tried to transfer my license from my laptop Windows 10 to PC and now I have the same license on two computers.


    I searched for some items here and found that it might not be allowed to transfer licenses, if I haven't purchased one before separately. But now I cannot remove license from neither my laptop, nor my desktop. Please let me know if such license transfer is allowed and how I can remove license from either device. Thank you!

    :)

  2. Digital License after transfer license to new computer

    Uninstalling a product key does not deactivate the license, there is actually no deactivation method. You would still need to contact support to actually invalidate the license on the old machine, so it can reactivate on the new machine.

    Transferring the license is a step by step process.

    First, you either remove the license from the machine by formatting it.

    Install it on the new machine.

    Contact chat support, then reactivate.

    Where Digital license is handy is when you are still using the machine and reinstall Windows 10 and need to reactivate the license after a significant hardware change, such as a hard disk.

    windows licensing issue

    k so the place where i work is around 4000 computers now and we r finally talking about moving to XP. i have a bit of a licensing issue that im curious on. all of the computers we purchase come with a windows xp OEM key. but to build a business wide image i have to use a volume license key installer. the head man thinks it is perfectly legal for me to come up with any random volume license key code to use on our image installer since each machine has a lisence stuck to it already. even though thouse licenses are for an oem install... for now im going to assume all the licenses on computers are actually for xp pro also, and not home, becuz then it would for sure not be legal.

    im just kinda curious of peeples views becuz i know how stict the uela is. and for 1 or 2 computers i wouldnt care but where im setting up 4000 computers for a government agency i would like to not hav the licensing fall back on me.

    How do you deactivate Windows 10 license on one computer and then install it on another?

    I am getting rid of the computer that has a full version of Windows 10 home installed on it. I want to use that license on a different computer. I cannot find within the Microsoft account a listing of the computers that have licenses and how I can deactivate
    the old computer.
