    How to remove all Digital licenses linked to my account besides the one I just bought from...


    I would like to know how to remove all Digital Licenses linked to my Microsoft account BESIDES the one I just bought directly from Microsoft.


    I had a Windows 10 Home license linked to my account that I'm almost positive was counterfeit, but it still worked somehow. I don't know how it got there or where it came from, so I uninstalled it using the command "slmgr /upk activation id". I DO NOT WANT TO BE ASSOCIATED WITH FRAUD.


    But when I went to sleep last night and woke up it was reactivated with the same key, because it is still linked to my account. The same thing would happen if I clicked on troubleshoot.


    I then went on eBay to try to purchase an OEM key and use that but that came up as a Volume key. I bought two of them which were both Volume. I think these are still attached to my account as well. Which I don't want.


    I uninstalled them with slmgr /upk and reported the eBay keys to Microsoft, as I was told to do in a previous post.


    I was getting tired of all this and just wanted a license that I know for a fact is 100% legitimate, so I purchased a retail license directly from Microsoft.


    I did a fresh install and typed in the product key when I was prompted to during installation. And when it finished I checked to make sure it was the right key using the command slmgr /dli and slgmr /dlv. Which it was.


    I then did a fresh install again and clicked I forgot my product key just to check if it would use the key I just purchased or the other one. It did not, it used the original product key that I'm pretty sure is counterfeit. So now I know that key is somehow still attached to my account which I DO NOT WANT.


    After that I did another fresh install, and typed in the product key I got from Microsoft when prompted, and when it finished I checked to make sure I'm using the right key, which I am using right now.


    Long story short, I don't know how the first key is attached to my account, or where it came from. I don't want the eBay keys attached to my account. All I want it the legit retail key I just purchased directly from Microsoft attached to my account.


    I only want to have the license I just purchased attached to my account so I know I am properly licensed and am not doing anything wrong.


    I also checked my devices in my Microsoft account multiple times during each of these steps and there is only one PC there, the one that I'm currently on.


    Here is what I think is linked to my account:

    Fake Windows 10 Home Key I WANT THIS REMOVED

    Windows 10 Pro Volume Key from eBay 1 I WANT THIS REMOVED

    Windows 10 Pro Volume Key from eBay 2 I WANT THIS REMOVED

    My retail key that I purchased directly from Microsoft about an hour ago THIS IS THE ONLY ONE I WANT ATTACHED TO MY ACCOUNT

    Thank you for any help you can provide.

    :)

    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?

    Link Microsoft Account to Windows 10 Digital License  


    Hello MCardona81, How to remove all Digital licenses linked to my account besides the one I just bought from... :)

    The digital license will automatically be linked when you sign in to Windows 10 with your Microsoft account.

    At step 2, what does it show for you in Activation on the right side?
