    Swap Licences between two Windows 10 computers


    Hello,


    I am looking to swap the licences on my laptop and desktop. Here are the current configurations:


    Desktop

    • Originally came with Windows Vista
    • Purchased & installed Windows 7 Home via 32bit DVD
    • upgraded through Microsoft free upgrade to Windows 10 Pro

    Laptop

    • Originally came with Windows 8
    • Upgraded to Windows 8.1 via download
    • upgraded through Microsoft free upgrade to Windows 10 Home


    What I am looking to do is have the Laptop switch licence to Windows 10 Pro and the desktop to Windows 10 Home. Would I be able to complete this?


    I appreciate any help with this, Thanks!

    :)

  2. Windows 10 Home and Pro Licence Swap

    I have a laptop running Windows 10 Home and a desktop running Windows 10 Pro. Can I swap the licences so that the laptop runs Windows 10 Pro and the desktop runs Windows 10 Home?

    Thanks,

    Alexander

    Windows 10 Product key swap

    Hi Andre

    You can only swap over those licences, if both licences are Retail licences (purchased separately to the PC's), if those licences came pre-installed on those PC's, they do not have transfer rights

    If those are retail licences, upgrading the Home SL to Pro will be easy, you can use a generic Pro key, however, downgrading the Pro licence to Home SL will require a full clean install of Windows Home SL

    If those licences are retail licences, please let me know and we can go through the steps to swap those over . . .

    Windows 10 Tweaks

    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
