    I have paid for a digital license through Microsoft and Windows is telling me that 10 is...


    So I recently built a PC and last night I installed windows. I installed on a flash drive and selected "no product key" on installation. Once in Windows I upgraded to full windows 10 with the purchase of the digital license offered in the Microsoft store. After paying and being billed, I still lack all of the features and options of being a licensed/keyed in windows 10 user (such as taskbar color customization, etc.). I just got done a full reinstall of windows to no avail, and support keeps sending me chasing my own tail and calling different numbers at different times and giving me no actual help. What do I need to do to get the fully activated version of windows, even after purchasing the digital license?



    I'm on Windows 10 home, if that will clarify things.

    :)

    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?
