    I have multiple Windows 10 licenses on my account, how do I select the correct on to transfer?


    I have two PC's that I build using a purchased copy of windows. I want to add them both to my Microsoft account. Once both are added how do I determine which copy goes with what build?

    Multiple questions about installing - transfer accounts etc.

    According to you, the accounts were Windows built-in admin, a local admin and standard user. None of them needs to be moved.

    The built-in admin account, as the name says, will be there when you boot the laptop first time. It is disabled by default, you just need to enable it. For two other accounts, simply create same accounts on laptop.


    Attach the HDD to laptop using an external USB enclosure, copy contents of data folders to respective folders on laptop.


    You mentioned that the desktop accounts were / are local accounts, not Microsoft accounts. See the options to get Pro here:
    If you can still access Windows on desktop, boot it up, make it a Microsoft account and link license to that MS account. Tutorials:
    When done, see this tutorial. It will show step by step what do on the laptop to transfer desktop license to it: Use Activation Troubleshooter in Windows 10

    This article is the best I have seen about when a license transfer is possible, and when not:

  3. Windows 10 license transfer

    Thanks Andre.

    i bought the license. My laptop was originally loaded with win 7 and was upgraded free couple of months.

    in this case, if i understand you correctly, i can transfer with below steps. Right.?

    let me buy my new laptop and try below.

    and to my question do you have an update.

    does OS upgrades if my activation key is changed.

    thanks
