  1. My windows is activated with a digital licence but I don't remember buying one


    Hello,


    I just reinstalled my device today and bought licence via a retailer. I'm still waiting for my order to arrive but I realized something strange. On the activation screen in settings I see my windows is activated with a licence linked to my Microsoft account. I don't remember buying or upgrading Windows before. I had a Dell branded laptop 7 or 8 years ago and it had a Windows 7 Home licence. My current OS is Windows 10 Pro. How is this possible? The device I'm using is a freedos device. Could it be a some kind of trial licence?

    Thank you.

    :)

  2. Windows Digital licence transfer

    Hi,

    hoping someone can help me. I have significantly upgraded my PC (almost everything apart from BD and case!) and have had to re-install Windows. The digital licence I had associated with the original PC will not install on my new PC and tells me it is
    invalid. From memory the old licence was associated to an old Windows 8.1 licence I bought many years ago.

    Is there anyway to utilise the digital licence. The only licence on my account I can use is a licence associated to a laptop that I actively use. Although the old PC is listed as have a digital licence.

    Any thoughts or help much appreciated

    Thanks
