  1. Re-linking of windows 10 activation key to a new microsoft account.


    I am using my son's deskstop. His window 10 activation key was linked to his account and his hotmail. I am now using his desktop and wish to link to my own microsoft account and to my gmail. I have already given myself administrator right. How to switch the link over?


    I need to change my motherboard and in order to have the windows 10 to recognize the hardware change. Thanks very much.

    :)

    Cool, I didn't know that. *Big Grin Re-linking of windows 10 activation key to a new microsoft account. :D

    I agree that the dark option is nice. I typically like to have a dark grey if possible, rather than jet black.

    Loophole Lets You Freely Upgrade to Windows 10 After Offer Expiry

    If you upgrade your 7 install to 10, which is worth it IMHO, make sure you link to a Microsoft Account. Otherwise you might not be able to easily regain the key if they block using 7 keys in the future.

    You don't need to use the Microsoft account as your profile on so you can still bypass logging in at setup and creating a local account. All you gotta do to link your 10 account to your MS install (if you choose not to use your MS account as your profile), is to simply do the following:

    • Click Start
    • Click Settings
    • Click Update and Security
    • Click Activation
    • As or with Admin permissions, click Add Account
    • Login with MS Account credentials.
    Then you should see a message that reads:

    Installing Windows 10 using Windows 7 key

    Nope, you need to install Windows 10 first and make sure the Windows 7 key is transferred to your Windows account after you've installed Windows 10 (not quite sure how that works). I missed the last step and I could not activate Windows 10 after a re-install... Microsoft seem to have done everything they can to make it a PITA. Also, it's technically too late to do this now anyhow, as the upgrade offer has expired. But KMSPico works quite well...

    As for getting rid of Windows, delete the Windows folder.
