    Switching Business Account to Personal Account


    I recently retired and was allowed to take my computer with me upon retirement.


    Because I was running the companies software--most notably Windows 10 and Office 365--I decided to go ahead and buy a subscription to Office 365 Home and I want to do the same thing for my Windows 10 software as well. The fact is, there are various IT Admin settings on the account that I would prefer to have removed and I don't think I can get rid of them without either doing a fresh install of Windows 10 or changing the Product Key (which I assume can be purchased online).


    Is my thinking correct? Do I need to pay to get a new Product Key? And do I need to change the product key from the one I currently have in order to avoid my former company having control over some of the settings on the computer.

    Thanks,


    John
