  1. Swapping Windows Pro License


    Hi


    I have a Windows 10 Pro installation on my current laptop. I am buying a new Lenovo laptop which comes with a Windows 10 Home version pre-installed.


    Since I am planning to give my current laptop to my kid, I would like to swap the licenses. Meaning, I would like to use the Pro version in the new laptop & use the Home license from the new one on my existing laptop.


    Is it possible to do it? If so, how?

    :)

    Windows 10 Pro and Windows 10 Home license swap

    I have old laptop with Win 8.1 Pro, which I upgraded to Windows 10 Pro.

    I bought a new laptop with Windows 10 Home.

    Is it possible to swap the licenses so I can use Windows 10 Pro features in my newer laptop ?

    Windows 10 Pro and Windows 10 Home license swap

    I know I can always upgrade and pay for the Win 10 Pro license.

    My query to be able to swap the license since I no longer plan to use my old laptop and the Win 10 Pro license is not utilized on my old laptop. Can you please answer to my particular query ?

    I don't want to buy a new license, I want Microsoft to offer me the opportunity to swap my Windows 10 license with a Windows 7 one. For the drivers it's not a big deal because I know how to update them individually with Intel and Lenovo.

    Thanks anyway!
