    Transfer a bought app on one account to another account


    Dears,I just miserably failed I guess. I have a MS Surface laptop which is being used by my daughter. It's running Windows 10. She has her own MS account and I have my own. I logged into her account to buy and install Sketchbook Pro app. I went into MS Store but I was logged into her account. I tried to login as myself but whenever I got to the point o having to type in my PIN Hello it said the PIN was incorrect. That is not the case - I logged in to Windows with my own account, changed the PIN number and tried logging in to MS Store on my own account without any problems. I went back to my

    Transfer a bought app on one account to another account

    Multiple questions about installing - transfer accounts etc.

    According to you, the accounts were Windows built-in admin, a local admin and standard user. None of them needs to be moved.

    The built-in admin account, as the name says, will be there when you boot the laptop first time. It is disabled by default, you just need to enable it. For two other accounts, simply create same accounts on laptop.


    Attach the HDD to laptop using an external USB enclosure, copy contents of data folders to respective folders on laptop.


    You mentioned that the desktop accounts were / are local accounts, not Microsoft accounts. See the options to get Pro here:
    If you can still access Windows on desktop, boot it up, make it a Microsoft account and link license to that MS account. Tutorials:
