    Product key information for Windows 10 home version


    I have purchased a new laptop with Windows Home already pre installed. It keeps asking for my windows account when I go into any programme (which I sign into ) and then a product key which is not recognised. Why does it do this if it was pre-installed ? Help

    :)

    Hi Markese,

    Thank you for using Windows 10.

    I would like to inform you that if you've upgraded from a genuine qualifying activated version of Windows (Windows 7SP1/8.1), then you will not need a product key.

    • Let us know if you're facing any issues with activation or product key related?
    I would also suggest you to refer to the section "Will I get a product key, can I get a product key?"
    in the following wiki article by "Andre Da Costa" for more information:

    information:

    Convert a Windows 8pro product key to a Windows 10pro produkt key

    Hi Andre,

    Thank you for contacting Microsoft community.

    I suggest you to Uninstall the license using the following steps.

    • Press Windows key + X
    • Click Command Prompt (Admin)
    • At the command prompt, type: slmgr.vbs -upk
    • Press Enter, this will uninstall the product key from the computer.
    Further on, install Windows 8.1 activate the copy with the product key on the new machine. Then again upgrade the same to Windows 10 using Window Update or Media Creation Tool.

    Hope this information was helpful and do let us know if you need further assistance. We will be glad to assist.
