    Product key for Windows 10 Professional Purchased in Microsoft Store


    This is a company laptop.Initially it's running with Windows 10 Home not activated.Purchased Windows 10 Pro license through Microsoft Store Online & proceed with the online installation but failed. Restarted the laptop & found out the license indicates Windows 10 Enterprise not activated. Attempt the activation process including the troubleshoot method & it still fails.The other method of activating Windows is via the product key. The online help directed me to extract it from the 'Order History' but it's not there.This is what I see :- Where can I get the product key for

  2. Using Windows 10 Professional Product key to Windows 8.1 Professional

    You have to buy windows 8.1 Pro.

    The Windows 10 key is only for Windows 10.

    There is Downgrade Rights but you don't qualify for it as you bought Windows 10 Pro yourself and they only apply to OEM preinstalled Windows 10 OEM licenses (Dell, HP, etc)

    Here is the information about Downgrade rights. It is an old Microsoft link which they removed but the information still apples>

    Device Partner Center

    Downgrade rights for Windows software
    The following OEM versions of Windows software are eligible for downgrade rights.

    [table][tr][td]Windows 10 Pro includes downgrade rights to:
    • Windows 8.1 Pro
    • Windows 7 Professional
    [/td][td]Windows 8.1 Pro includes downgrade rights to:
    • Windows 7 Professional
    • Windows Vista Business
    [/td][td]Windows 7 Professional and Windows 7 Ultimate include downgrade rights to:
    • Windows Vista Business and Windows Vista Ultimate
    • Windows XP Professional, Windows XP Tablet PC Edition, or Windows XP x64 Edition
    Note Other OEM Windows 7 versions (for example, Windows 7 Home Basic and Windows 7 Home Premium) do not include downgrade rights.[/td][/tr][/table]

    Note downgrade rights are only available as long as Microsoft provides support for that earlier version,
    as outlined in the
    Windows lifecycle fact sheet
    .

    Steps for an end user to downgrade Windows software

    To downgrade eligible Windows software, end users must:

    • Purchase a PC preinstalled with Windows software.
    • Accept the Microsoft Software License Terms.
    • Perform the downgrade process to the eligible downgrade product using the media/key from a genuine, previously licensed OEM or retail product.
    @@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@

    Microsoft no longer sells any edition of Windows 8.1.

    try amazon.com, etc.

    Warning:

    You do not buy a Product Key by itself, as they are normally stolen/pirated, Volume Licenses which are not for private use, or MSDN keys which are not to be sold by the original subscription holder.

    Make sure that you buy the complete sealed package (DVD, license)

    Read Section: Beware of Product Keys sold separately.
