    Taking out Windows 10 Pro license from a PC


    Hi,


    It seems this is a strange question. The thing is, my notebook came with Windows 8 Home license, and I just replaced it with my own Windows 10 Pro retail license. Well, it was Windows 8 Pro, and upgraded to 10 Pro. And now I want to sell my notebook, and not going to get a new notebook soon. I don't want to include my Windows 10 Pro to my buyer, instead I intend to put Windows 10 Home in it.


    Now, can I reinstall it using Windows 10 Home license? Or should I use Windows 8 Home?

    Also, I want to remove this notebook from my device list, and revoke my license to use on a future computer which I haven't decided yet. Can it just be... well.. stay uninstalled for a few month? Like ... until Christmas?


    Thank you

    :)

    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?

    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

    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.
