  1. 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:
