    Hi Ann,

    Digital License is received or attached to your Microsoft account whenever your
    computer was upgraded from a previous version of Windows. This license is stored on the Microsoft Activation Servers. If you upgrade
    from a retail version of Windows 7 or Windows 8 and 8.1 to the free Windows 10 upgrade, the license is stored in it and Windows 10 will carry that licensing too.

    If in case that you purchase Windows 10 Pro through the
    Windows
    Store, you may check account.microsoft.com, then click on the
    Services & Subscription tab to view all your purchased products and subscriptions. To view your product key or digital license, you may also follow these steps:

    • Go to Order history,
      then select Product key/Install.
    • Select Copy to copy the key, then select Install.
    • Select Download tool now, and follow the instructions.
    • A wizard will help you through the steps to install.

    If in case your digital license or product key is not visible, we recommend this time that you contact our
    Accounts & billing team so they can provide you assistance and recommendation about your issue.

    Let us know if you have other questions.

    digital license

    Thanks for your suggestion. I solved the problem with my License Key with Belarc Advisor Software. The Digital License code was a numeration that Microsoft Corporation has given to all that have Windows Account specially to those that has free upgraded
    to Windows 10. Under the Digital License appears the original code.

    Digital License

    Windows 10 Digital License

    When you upgraded from a previous version of Windows or receive a new computer preinstalled with Windows 10, what happened is the hardware (your PC) will get a digital entitlement, where a unique signature of the computer will be stored on Microsoft
    Activation Servers. The Windows 7 or Windows 8 genuine license you were previously running will be exchanged for a diagnostics key.

    Anytime you need to reinstall Windows 10 on that machine, just proceed to reinstall Windows 10. It will automatically reactivate. You will prompted to enter a product key a couple times through the installation, click I don't have
    a key and Do this later.

    There is no need to know or get a new key, but if you have issues with Digital Licensing or the Activation Troubleshooter, you can utilize an existing Windows 7 or Windows 8/8.1 product key you already own to
    reactivate if necessary. or use the reset function in Windows 10.

    Activate Your Windows 10 License via Microsoft Chat Support

    Reinstall by Performing a Direct Clean Install

    If Windows 10 was already installed and activated on your system, just proceed to perform a direct clean install as described in the following articles.
