    This product is licensed to Windows User?


    After upgrading to Windows 10 I was checking the version to compare to my other Win 10 computer and this is what I saw. Wondering why it says this product is licensed to "Windows User"? On my other Windows 10 computer it shows my name first and then below it it says "Windows User". Like this:

    Name
    Windows User

    Why is my name not shown as the Windows user on this computer when it is shown on the other? I use a local account with my first name on both computers. And BTW both computers are the same version.

    :)

    Is this product snobbery or is no one willing to help?

    I'm sure someone must have a little bit of advice or guidance that they could give regarding an earlier post about a nokia 5800. Go on, give me a bit of help, please!

  3. A few questions about licenses and product keys..

    Hi Donutterz,



    Welcome to Microsoft Community.



    I appreciate your interest in windows 10. I understand the inconvenience you faced. I will certainly help you with this.

    No it will not tell the product key is already in use if you have upgraded windows 8 from same product key for one pc license because it is the product key which you used for upgrade of windows 10 from your windows 8 .

    If you will use same product key to downgrade different system then it will show you " the product key is already in use" because it is the product key for one pc license.

    I want to inform you can use a product key for one computer it depends on version of windows operating system and also license of operating system.

    If you have OEM license then you will be able to use 1 product key only for 1 Pc which you bought from manufacturer.

    If you are using volume license so you can use 1 product key in many computers.
    To know about licensing follow the below link:

    Windows 10 Licensing | Microsoft Volume Licensing

    Hope this helps.
    Thanks.

    I don't really know what determines if you get Windows User there or the first username of the first account you create. I have two computers both running build 14393 Insider Preview, 64-bit pro version. One computer says "John", the other computer says "Windows User". Both of these computers started with clean installs of Windows 10 performed by me and both of the first user accounts created on them were local accounts with the username "John".

    A Windows quirk no doubt. Not the first or last I will see I am sure. Thanks for your input. I'll have to rein in my OCD tendencies on this one and just live with the difference.

    edit: misspelling.
