  1. Re-using Windows 10 License


    Hi,I bought a new laptop. It's Matebook 14. It has come with Windows 10 Home OS. So, I didn't need to buy a new one.I'm currently using this OS but probably I'll change it into Ubuntu. Maybe I can make dual OS. Anyway, I need to know.. Let's say I installed Ubuntu over Windows 10, if I want to use Windows 10 again, will I be able to use my original license.There are some people who are using it with cracking, illegal ways but I don't want to do them. It's unethical.Because of I paid this Windows 10 when I bought the Matebook 14, I don't want to throw out the license :Thanks,Furkan.

    :)

    Windows 10 upgrade license

    Hello guys,

    I have 1 license of WIndows 8.1 FPP/retail license. I want to upgrade to WIndows 10, but I one thing is unclear to me.
    If I upgrade, will WIndows 10 license be retail or it will "turn" into some sort of OEM license?

    I ask this because I upgrade my PC, you know, more memory, replace HDD, and I intend to upgrade the MB and CPU to Kaby Lake platform sometime in the future, (and of course sell the replaced hardware)
    This thing is not clearly mentioned anywhere.

    Thank you.

    Pressing “Windows+Pause Break” (it’s up there next to scroll lock) opens the “System” Window.

    Windows 10: In the new version of Windows, Explorer has a section called Quick Access. This includes your frequent folders and recent files. Explorer defaults to opening this page when you open a new window. If you’d rather open the usual This PC, with links to your drives and library folders, follow these steps:

    • Open a new Explorer window.
    • Click View in the ribbon.
    • Click Options.
    • Under General, next to “Open File Explorer to:” choose “This PC.”
    • Click OK

    Windows 10 upgrade license

    The interesting question is that: the upgrade takes place before 29 of July. If I upgrade the PC (change the MB), and I transfer the Win 8.1 license to this new PC (cause 8.1 is retail FPP), will I be able to upgrade to Windows 10 for free? Or a upgrade license must be bought?
